Whilst on the way to work (on foot) I was minding my own business when a very elderly looking lady rounded the corner and seemed to be heading straight for me, she must have been 90 odd but was travelling at quiet a pace!, due to the lack of space on the pavement (street furniture and those green NTL? boxes) I had to turn sideways to avoid a collision, yet she passed through me. She was dressed like it was ladies day at Ascot, complete with big hat, she was also holding a gold envelope and had a thousand yard stare, when I turned around she was not there. The area where it happened also afforded me another strange experience last year when I saw (and briefly spoke to) a workmate (who had passed away, but I didn't know this as I was on holiday) she called my name and asked me which way to go? I asked her what was she on about? and she repeated the question and then walked off. The area is the wells road in Nottingham, a friend of mine suggested paranormal activity often occurs near wells and/or natural springs (the wells are covered up and have been for years)..............any thoughts?

Well the first event sounds like a time-slip and the second like a farewell visit.

A swift Google found no previous reported incidents there but I see the area is riddled with tunnels:

I suppose some will always say such events are brief hallucintations brought on by tiredness but I always like the idea of portals opening on the past in urban locations. Thanks for posting. Smile

We'll need a tediously detailed description of the process of being passed through, please! Very Happy

I second that emotion. Details please.

I've been passed by, passed over, passed around, passed out, made passes at (rarely), and past all hope, but never passed through.

HA!

All I can say is, she walked towards me as if I wasn't there, I made a feeble bid to turn sideways to avoid collision but the old girl was on a mission, she was in front of me, then behind me as if I wasn't there, no tingling sensation, no feelings, nothing!, I am interested in the gold envelope she was so boldly carrying........

Maybe she was late for announcing the winners at an award ceremony?

She did look like she was on the way to some old school posh shindig, it was 8am though, at first I thought she had 'escaped' from the new dementia care home that was nearby

When the woman passed by you, were you looking at her or facing the other way? You mention turning sideways.

I was looking at her, she was looking a thousand miles in the distance, I turned away like one might if in a car crash?

So you never saw her walk through you, yes?

Maybe she was one of the 2D cut out people from another thread and turned sideways to get past?

vaguely similar to the op enough to put here i hope and i really cant get less than 3000 hits on the search function...
theres been very little of strange interest happen just recently except for three odd things. the first happened as i was doing the last few jobs before going to bed-putting the washing on, feeding the various hairies and making a drink. It was quite late, about 1.45 and i was standing in the kitchen waiting for the microwave to do its thing when i felt a finger run across the back of my neck.As the only other person around was the dog (and he was standing in front of me) this made me jump so much that i actually crashed into the kitchen cupboard door handle, severely inconveniencing my knee. Made my drink and hotfooted it upstairs.
the second was a couple of weeks later, i had just got into bed-i know Rolling Eyes , but as it happens i still had to share my cocoa with the dog and don my nightcap, i hadnt even finished a page of the book i was reading so maybe five mins had passed. i was laying on my side facing the lamp and the wall when i felt in quick succession three hands being placed flat palms on my back at shoulder level. This happened several times very fast-at first when i would have thought i would have leapt up shrieking i sort of froze and just thought 'oh thats strange', then started to get a bit freaked and was wondering how many leaps it would take to make the bedroom door at which point it stopped. i did not want to turn round for any money, so slid out of bed and went back downstairs for 5 mins pacing and not wanting to go back up. which of course i had to do eventually and all was as it should be.
The last which happened maybe a fortnight ago, i was making the fire in the morning and crouching down to lay it prior to lighting it. as i crouched i was pushed on my bottom. This had the effect of tipping me forward and i had to stop myself on the front of the fire, so good job i hadnt lit it yet. I presumed it was the dog so turned round to tell him off only to find nobody. (he in fact was in his bed in the kitchen).
This has not happened before, (with the touching i mean), lots of noises things moving around etc previously. could this be an un-natural progression? Shocked

On the subject of being walked through...

There is an Antique shop here that I like to mooch around

The back area of the shop used to be open and had larger items in it , tables, chairs etc.
I was walking toward the back of said shop one day when I felt a passing 'buzz' which affected my left hand side very briefly and in the instant before I had time to analyse what had caused it I instantly knew that I had passed through some 'other energy' and I said 'sorry'.
Never felt anything like it before or since
