My husbands grandfather used to go to meetings of the Druids Lodge in Leeds - area uncertain. His name was Arthur W Hewitt.
Can anyone tell me anything about this organisation or where I might try looking? Google has not proved helpful

Thank you Ann. I don't really know what a Druids Lodge was, but this will give me a start. Regards Carol

Thanks ArgllGran. Something to read! Doesn't sound like an ordinary guy from a grotty area of Leeds would have been involved in this...but hey!
Thanks, Carol
