The Somerset countryside can rightly be considered the Cradle of Christianity in Britain.
Joseph of Arimathea reputedly came to Glastonbury and planted there his Staff which flowers each year at Christmas as the Glastonbury Thorn.
The Vale of Avalon is rich in legends of King Arthur and his Knights and at Wedmore itself the Great Christian King Alfred made peace with the Danes. The Ruins of the Palace of the Kings of Wessex can still be seen at nearby Cheddar.
What more fitting place than Wedmore for a Rose Croix Chapter to serve the whole area of Central Somerset, including Cheddar, Glastonbury, The Ancient Avalon and the “Isle” of Wedmore together with the Historic City of Wells with its magnificent Cathedral.
Where applicable an explanation of the proposed name of the Chapter is requested along with the Petition. The reader will agree that the above exposition fulfills that requirement most admirably and does credit to the Founders.
The Chapter was consecrated on the 5th July, 1982 .
