Bro. Ian Duxbury has been due to receive an explanation of the Second Degree Tracing board for several months now, but seeing as he is regularly away on business it has taken some time to do just that.
The fact that we are now at Colne made all the difference to the proceedings. The Nelson Tracing Boards, which are now at Padiham Masonic Hall I believe, are the standard sized item and easily moved around the open lodge. Colne Masonic Hall however have some rather magnificent Tracing Boards that they are rightly very proud of. They are approx 7 ft x 5 ft in width and are beautifully decorated boards. It was a real treat to see them in their full splendor, as many of the Nelson masons were not aware of their existence until now.
