The Castle

“Mooncrow” shared a Fast Forward AND Lost Location spacetime slip.  The wormhole solution her friend later proposed might just be a more likely explanation for what she and her husband experienced than she thinks!  (See original posting at

About three years ago, my husband and I were living in Norfolk, England in a town called Newmarket.  There isn’t much to do in that area of the country so we liked to take road trips and see historical sites.

One morning we set out to visit Warwick Castle Warwick-Castle-2184which is a large castle and a bustling tourist attraction.  It was about two hours away.  We spent the day touring the castle rooms and having our infant son’s picture taken with the various people in costume.  We left a little before closing time.

As we drove home, there was a certain turn off about 20-30 minutes that we needed to take to get back on the M6 and head home.  I kept looking for it and never saw it.  After about 45 minutes we became concerned and pulled over to figure out where we were.  Important note here:  The castle closed at 5:00.  When we pulled over it was about 5:30.

We pored over our atlas only to discover we had passed our exit and were currently somewhere near Nottingham.  Confused, we got back in the car and started back toward our exit.  It took an hour and a half.  A drive that took 30 minutes the firs time, took three times that on the way back.  My husband gave me an uncomfortable look when I pointed this out.

I later asked a British friend of mine what she thought of us, showing her on the map how far we’d gone.  She just blinked at me and said, “Maybe you . . . went through a wormhole?”  While that is an unlikely explanation, no one offered another.

We live in a wondrous universe, and I love learning about it. Spacetime slips are one facet of existence that fascinate me. As a retired teacher I enjoy researching this topic and sharing the information I garner.
