I moved to an Ancient town called Rye on the south east coast of England. The town itself gives me the heebie jeebies and I have quite often 'felt
things' watching me. A lot of people seem to think that Rye is haunted along with many other towns in the south east. One of the first threads I
wrote on ATS was about the town Hastings where I grew up and Aleister Crowley's potential
influence on the seaside town..
funnily enough (or not) his name will pop up in this thread as well.
The temple, or whatever it is, had already twigged my curiosity prior to discovery as it is situated on church grounds near my house and for all
intents and purposes looks like an abandoned outbuilding. I have always had a fascination for such places so one night I jumped the fence to go check
it out. It was pitch black and I felt an instant sense of foreboding as I entered so I used the torch on my phone to check the floor. The first thing
I noticed was a dirty sleeping bag fully unzipped and a raggedy thatched sofa with no cushions. The second thing I noticed was a human turd in the
corner.. I felt sick and all my senses were overwhelmed so I left pretty quickly. Ever since that night I have always wondered who left the sleeping
bag and the mess in the corner till it sort of slipped my mind. Until yesterday.
Yesterday I was riding my push bike up the harbour road, past the abandoned building until I stopped, remembering what had happened and looked back. I
remembered how much the place had creeped me out before so I decided to turn back, chain up my bike and hop the fence yet again. This time it was day
time and I could see. This time I took pictures..
I walk in, turn towards my left and face this.
I can't remember where the rest of the pictures were situated I just remember some of them instilling in me a sense of fear and making me feel very
unwelcome. Some of the pictures seem quite cool and all of them seem artistic but some of them have a certain 'occult feel' to them that just
doesn't sit right. I wouldn't even know where to start trying to decode what some of it means and I don't think I particularly want to so I'm just
going to upload the rest of the pictures and pretty much leave it at that..
I honestly wouldn't know where to start with decrypting this art work. The place itself had the feel of a junkies squat and the artwork looks as
though the artist may well have been under the influence of something at the time of inception. Aleister Crowley himself was a huge fan of drugs,
witchcraft and magic. I think the picture of the large man may depict Crowley but I'm not sure.
There seems to be at least some pyramid symbolism and it seems as though there may be pictures depicting animal and maybe even human sacrifice but
again I'm not too sure..
If you look closely you will see the words 'Altar worship'. The temple of Zeus is an Olympic temple in Greece so I'm not quite sure where that fits
in. The word Love? is crossed out in reference to the area. (Rye Harbour)
Underneath where it says Aleister Crowley it appears as though a crack in the wall has been filled in to represent the grim reaper or death and next
to that it looks like there may be a drawing of the pits of hell.. with something pink and relatively friendly looking above it to draw you in? I saw
this because whatever the pink thing is seems to have a mischievous look on its face..
I really don't know what to make of all this. I would have spent more time taking decent pictures but to be honest with you I wanted to get the hell
