Provincial Grand Master T. Wood

The Installation of Bro. Thomas Wood as Provincial Grand Master of Kilwinning and his Commissioned Office Bearers took place on Saturday 30th June 2018, within the premises of The Mother Lodge of Scotland.  The installation ceremony was carried out by Bro. Charles Iain Robert Wolrige of Esslemont Most Worshipful Grand Master Mason.

The Provincial Grand Lodge of Kilwinning has the unique position of only having one Lodge in her province that being Lodge Mother Kilwinning No.0 and was formed in 1983 as part of the amendments to the 1807 agreement between The Grand Lodge of Scotland and The Grand Lodge of Kilwinning.

In accordance with the 1807 Agreement, between the Grand Lodge of Scotland and the then Grand Lodge of Kilwinning, when installed as the Master of Lodge Mother Kilwinning, by right of that office he became Provincial Grand Master of Ayrshire.

In 1983, this agreement was amended and Mother Kilwinning give up this previously held tradition in exchange for there to be erected and consecrated the Provincial Grand Lodge of Kilwinning.

Provincial Grand Lodge of Kilwinning was consecrated on the 18th November 1983 when Bro David Patterson was installed as the first Provincial Grand Master of Kilwinning.


The P.G.L. of Kilwinning has only one Lodge in her province, "Kilwinning No.0", thus ensuring her singular position in the Masonic World. Another amendment to the 1807 agreement is, that for all time coming Lodge Mother Kilwinning will nominate a suitable Brother as Grand Lodge Bible Bearer in the Grand Lodge of Scotland.
