Warranted 13 th September, 2001
The Emblem adopted by our Chapter is taken from the unique double inverted arches at the south end of the Nave buttressing the central tower in St. Andrews Cathedral, Wells. The arches were erected in 1338, seven years after the tower was built. The inverted arches are said to be emblematic of a St. Andrews’s Cross.
The name “Harry Franklin Chapter” is derived from V. lll.Bro. Rev. Sub Dean Dr. Henry Laurence Franklin of Wells Cathedral, appointed Sovereign Grand Inspector General for the District of Somerset and Wiltshire in 1973 and whose regalia can be seen on the Chapter Honours Board .
The Chapter was consecrated on the 30th January, 2002.
