Administrative history:
The initiative for a new Lodge in Worthing came from a number of Freemasons living in Worthing who were members of London Lodges. This nucleus of people met at Bro. Bernard Joseph Trenner's house in Brook Barn Way to discuss the formation of a new Lodge. The United Grand Lodge of England stipulates that each Lodge has to be distinguished by a name and number. The name Brook Barn Lodge, No. 6680 was assumed after the name of the street in which the founders met. The first Master of the Lodge was Wor. Bro. B.J. Trenner. The new Lodge was consecrated on the 29 June 1948 at the Sussex Masonic Temple, Brighton.
A class of instruction was constituted before the Lodge was consecrated. A Masonic Club of Instruction continued to meet until December 1950. In January 1951 a Lodge of Instruction was founded.
