Having just read the posts regarding 'Netherwood' it has starting me thinking
about The Bell Inn, at Aston Cinton, a residence of AC prior to his move to
Netherwood. I gather that the Bell Inn has been renamed The Duck Inn,
which sounds not only trite, but why fix something that isn't broken.
Has anybody been there recently? Crowley occupied room 11, is that still there, or has the place had a total refurbishment. Does anybody know the current location of the room, all I know is that it was North facing.
Any information on this would be much appreciated.

There are, by the way, photographs of the establishment in the the Galleries here…

Thanks Paul the photos of the interior are illuminating. Thanks also Michael, the Google reference is helpful, and the place seems smaller than I imagined.

The place has been refurbished again, and it's back as The Bell now.
They even have a picture of Aleister in the entrance hall with a bit of text underneath describing him as a philospher!

But he was a philosopher, at least to some, though without any academic title!

The Bell is a great pub, but I have never seen the rooms. You could always give them a call?

Visited today, very nice makeover and rooms look great (we had a sneak preview in room number four, tasteful individual boutique feel). Lots of original heavy beams and the two front rooms are historically listed. However no picture of Crowley or any other famous guest for that matter - perhaps they were victims of the makeover? They are knocking out two courses for £9.95 and a bottle of champagne as a Friday special for £19.95 - perhaps the usually cash strapped AC would approve!
