    Default Paradox/Littlewoods, Aintree

    Went past the remains this morning and there were mobile phone contractors removing the masts from the top of the tower which I think was the only reason this was left standing when they demolished the rest of it. I don't think there will be much time to get any final pictures people...

    Last I heard, the owners of Aintree retail park had bought it. Most probably to build more stores.

    A retail park PLUS 5 wind turbines was the last I heard.

    There's two wind turbines next to where I work in Wavertree - trouble is, they seem not to go when it's blowing a gale yet virtually take off on a sunny day!!

    BTW, Paradox was Vernons, not Littlewoods.

    Lovely photo.
    The part that's left was just the tower in the middle of the building.

    Im not too sure this is 100% correct but from what I have heard the Vernons tower is a listed building.

    Well, you wouldn't want to wear them out would you?

    They have more value as a tax subsidy even when stationary....
