In the month of June 1918 a group of brethren in Peterborough decided to form a Royal Ark Mariner Lodge from which the Powys R.A.M. Lodge No. 477 was later constituted and moored to the Fitzwilliam Lodge of Mark Master Masons No. 477.
The first Commander was Lord Lilford who was the first of four brethren of the Lodge subsequently to attain the Office of Provincial Grand Master. On 5th October 2018 the brethren of Powys assembled to celebrate the Centenary of the Lodge in the presence of the Deputy Grand Master, R.W.Bro. John Prizeman and the Provincial Grand Master, R.W.Bro. Robert Stokes, two Past Provincial Grand Masters and a Past District Grand Master of the District of the River Plate.
