The concept of an Ashwell Lodge was born in the minds of three Brethren of the village of Ashwell at a time of great Masonic surge in North Hertfordshire. The Lodge was consecrated in 1963 to serve an area north of the Mother Lodge, Baldock Lodge of Harmony, which at that time had grown too large.

Ashwell takes its name from a local spot known as ‘the springs’, source of the River Rhee and the inspiration for the Lodge Crest, which was designed by the first Senior Warden and embroidered by the wife of the first Junior Warden. The design of the Crest symbolically includes the three degrees as fields of grain and local waters. The Lodge Motto ‘E Fontibus Vires’, alludes to the springs and when translated means ‘From the Springs cometh Strength’.
