I discovered this phonomenon by accident a while ago. I love Liverpool generally and I am fascinated by this. Has anyone got any theories or had any experiences? I like the idea of time looping back on itself and different times existing at the same time Liverpool Time Slips

I love reading the Liverpool time slip stories. I know the area well and it's fascinating.

No experiences, but have just read those stories on Reddit and now I'm intrigued!
A lot of them seem to feature a very small geographical area - I wonder how widely talked about they are? Off to google now!

Brilliant! I'm really glad I've inspired people grin It's so interesting how they mostly seem to be from one era. Could it be because the spirit of Liverpool in the 60s is so powerful that it still echoes today?

Beautiful photos It may be the quartz in the soil. So fascinating. I'd love to experience one.

LoveMySituation do you know if they've been reported in other parts of Liverpool/Merseyside?

LoveMySituation Wed 19-Jul-17 18:34:39

Yes Squirrel, in other streets, and in the Queensway tunnel, where there was a slip into the future, as opposed to the past. Which seems unusual. Lots of spooky things around there. Am loving reading about them!

Somewhere called Thingwall too. Is it real? Comes up in relation to the area. No idea where it is

I'm going to Waterstones!

The Tom Slemen haunted Liverpool/Wirral books have a lot of time slip stories.

My favourite theory was that it was caused by the weird electrical interference created by the underground train loop that runs beneath the city centre.

The waterstones hasn't been there for a long time now!

Let me know if you get back crankgrin

LoveMySituation Fri 21-Jul-17 14:49:29

I wonder why we don't seem to have similar stories coming out of places which also have underground railways like London ijustwanna?

toosexyforyahshirt Fri 21-Jul-17 14:51:33

That's just stories of people hallucinating.

TheHiphopopotamus Fri 21-Jul-17 14:54:33

It's probably not the railway. There are some famous ones that are nowhere near railways.

Don't know about other cities but spent years working in Liverpool city centre and used to go in the old waterstones in late teens. I never experienced anything. sad

I've only experienced it once, but not seeing streets in the past or future, I just 'lost' 15 minutes. I used to work 10 minutes walk from home; we started at 9am so I left at 8.50 every morning. Apart from a watch, I have clocks dotted around the house so even if one of them had been wrong, they wouldn't all be wrong.

That morning I left at 8.50. My walk was down quiet residential side streets with only one slightly busier, but not main, road to cross. When I got into work, the clock on the back wall said 9.15 and all my colleagues were already sitting at their desks (instead of tea making, which they would have been at 9am!). I expressed surprise at the clock saying 9.15, to which one of my colleagues replied that it was 9.15.

I apologised for being late but said I'd left home at 8.50 and I had no idea where the 15 minutes had gone. I hadn't forgotten something and returned home for it and I hadn't bumped into anyone I knew en-route and stopped for a chat. As far as I was aware my walk just took the normal 10 minutes, when it actually took me 25 minutes confused

LoveMySituation Tue 25-Jul-17 21:56:27

Interesting Fru. And that it only happened the once. Did you feel completely normal during it? Logic says the opposite will happen one day grin

FruBayerischOla Tue 25-Jul-17 22:00:47

Absolutely normal. Nothing odd or unusual about my daily 10 minute walk that morning. Except for getting there 15 minutes after I should have done. It was weird. Not during the walk, of course, but afterwards.
