Strange But True

A Memory of Beckington

Our first home was a ground floor bedsit at 40 Castle Corner opposite the castle. The old part of the road formed a hammer head and had three parking bays. One dark rainy winters night my husband parked outside and ran in to get his wallet. When he got back outside the car was gone. He ran out into the road and saw that it was in fact parked between two cars in the hammer head. He must have left it with the handbrake off and the camber of the road must have determined the line at which it travelled. Whether the two parked cars were already there or not we shall never know. He couldn't have parked it better if he had been behind the wheel.
