St. Nicholas Lodge came into being in the aftermath of the Second World War. During the War years many adults had been relocated to Hertfordshire to work in industries directly related to the war effort. The attendances at the Harpenden Lodge grew to such proportions that a second Lodge in the town was considered desirable.

Taking its name from the local Parish Church, the Lodge Crest depicts a full length portrait of Saint Nicholas, Patron Saint of children and sailors which is repeated in enamel on the Past Masters’ Breast Jewel.

The first Master was W. Bro Arnold Simon OBE, who subsequently became Deputy Provincial Grand Master.
