Salford Masonic Hall – Helmsley Hall

The Salford City Council’s document entitled “The Crescent – Conservation Area Appraisal” describes Hemsley House as follows, “The Masonic Hall at 41-42 The Crescent was built in the 1920s and replaced two of the original Georgian houses.

The building makes an effort to respect its Georgian context with a stripped-down classical facade largely faced in ashlared limestone. Full-height red brick recesses are separated by limestone pilasters and have windows in elaborate stone surrounds to the ground floor.

An imposing central entrance features a pilastered porch surmounted by an arched window with acanthus enriched mouldings, flanked by lions’ head masks and pendant foliate decoration. A parapet hides the roof.”
