"the chosen few"
I am delighted to welcome you to our website and hope that you enjoy your visit.
We are one of 251 Lodges in the Masonic Province of Hampshire and Isle of Wight, which also encompasses Bournemouth.
Portus Magnus was founded in Portsmouth on Thursday 4th December 1947.
The Consecrating Officer was Right Worshipful Brother James Edward Harris, the Right Honourable 7th Earl of Malmesbury, who during his 27 years as Provincial Grand Master, consecrated no less than 49 new lodges in the Masonic Province of Hampshire and Isle of Wight.
