Photos show cottage of Satanist Aleister Crowley with ‘why are you in my house?’ scrawled on wall


Eerie photographs show inside the abandoned cottage of a Satanic once dubbed ‘the wickedest man in the world’.

Thrill seekers creeped around Aleister Crowley’s former home, called Carn Cottage, in Zennor, Cornwall, to take the pictures and footage last week.

Pictures show apparatus believed to have been used to try and contact demons in the rickety farmhouse in the early 20th Century.

Mr Crowley, a writer and occultist, dabbled in the dark arts and even called himself the ‘Beast 666’.

In another snap, a door nearly falls of his hinges deep inside the crumbling property, as well as apparatus that can be used as a link between man and God – or demons. 

One of the men who entered the house, called Ben, said: ‘It was quite terrifying walking around it, the place had a mood that stuck with us after we left.

‘Knowing that the place was used for satanic worship makes it extremely eerie to walk around, and who knows what is buried underneath it.

‘If you use it for dark magic like Aleister Crowley did, called the Qliphoth, it can improve magic for occultists.’

The urban explorer added: ‘There was also a symmetrical pattern laid out in cones with gods names and Hebrew text underneath it.

‘It’s crazy to think people have been very serious about summoning something very dark and using the house as a portal which Aleister did too.’ 

Ben added: ‘The house is situated on top of a massive hill, isolated and surrounded by strange rock formations which are meant to have mystical powers.

‘It makes you wonder what went on in a home like this, it has a very sinister feel when you walk around it. We have been finding abandoned places for a while now, but this ranks as one of the scariest.’

Aleister Crowley, originally called Edward, from Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, was a British writer, mountaineer, and known occultist.

In 1920 he moved to Scilly and established his own religion but was later expelled from the city due to a member of his religion mysteriously dying during a ritual.

When he was dubbed ‘the wickedest man in the world’ by the UK press in the early 20th Century, he denied the label.
