As a result of a discussion of various Members of Ashwell House under the Chairmanship of W. Bro Bob Cook, General Manager of Ashwell House, it was decided to form a Lodge for London Masons using the name Londinium. Grand Lodge would not agree to this name and it was decided to use a local name ‘Romanum’ St. Albans being a Roman City.

There were too many Founders, so two Lodges were formed; one, Gorhambury No. 8745, the other Romanum. The Lodge Crest has the Pillars depicting the Tower of London and the inner part depicting the Roman Wall of Verulamium, part of which still exists.
