Whalley Arches Lodge takes its name from the famous railway structure that passes over the Calder Valley close by the Abbey. It is a daytime lodge meeting at 10.30 am on the second Monday of September, November, March and June. The Installation takes place at the September meeting.

Being a daytime lodge Whalley Arches attracts those Freemasons who find evening meetings difficult to attend.
