  • Crowley and The Abbey of Thelema

    One of the most enduring myth's surrounding Stephenson, is the alleged bloody ties he was said to possess.

    These allegedly made an appearance at The Abbey pf Thelema, and I was under some delusion, that this place was a monastery, or similar large building, so imagine my suprise when I discovered it was nothing more than a large shack!

    Here are some images,

    Good post Mike

    I can't think where I read it was the Ripper's gloves beneath the altar...

      I had these romantic visions of a lovely building with domes and balconies overlooking the sea or a lake, didn't think it was a shed! I am opening an Abbey of Mike at the bottom of my garden. There won't be any heroin or cocaine, but there will he finger nibbles!

        Hi Mike!

        Thanks for the photos. I'd seen the first link before, but the blogger link was a new gem!

            Thanks for the updated photos, Mike! I'd only viewed the original set on geocities years ago.
