Temple of Ishtar & Baal

Temple of Ishtar & Baal

The Chapel, no longer consecrated to Christian worship, now serves, if local rumour is to be believed, as a Black Temple dedicated to the Olde Gods of Ishtar and Baal where the assembled residents of the Towers, the staff and a discrete selection of invited guests practice the diabolical black arts conjuring the spirits of demons and darklings, perform unholy Satanic rites of black magic, and indulge, according to the sub-postmistress Mrs. Postlethwaite who functions as the local telegraph (gossip) service, in the most licentious and lustful of orgies beyond the wild imaginings of mere mortals (which the sub-postmistress is evidently not given her graphic and very detailed accounts of the alleged goings-on). Mrs Postlethwaite, it must be said, has been observed surreptitiously reading the black magic novels of Dennis Wheatley during those frequent quiet moments in the shop. Say no more!
