Constructed by the Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution, this residential home for elderly Masons was one of several opened in the 1960s and 1970s. The camera tours the building, speaks to some charismatic residences and gives time to the architect, also a Mason, to explain his thinking. We then watch a speech by Earl Cadogan, who opens the home.
