Club clock is up for sale; FACE OF PARADOX FOUND BY ANTIQUE DEALER.

THE iconic clock face from Paradox Nightclub, in Aintree, is up for sale.

Drew Pritchard, who stars in Salvage Hunters, a TV show about his antiques dealing business, bought the clock face in Tarporley, Cheshire, after it was recovered from the demolition site of the club.

The face has now been restored and is up for sale for PS1,500.

Other clock faces from the tower were also recovered. However, some were damaged beyond repair.

Drew said: "I went to a salvage yard in Tarporley called Re-claimed World, where I found the clock faces.

"They're massive and we've had to do some work to them, but it was mainly just technical stuff to hold it together properly.

"Jeff, who owns the yard, said there were four originally but some of them were damaged during the demolition."

The art-deco style clock tower, on Ormskirk Road, Aintree - which used to be the Vernon Pools building - was demolished in 2011 after years of decay.
