Ghostly Picton Clock

A strange tale i was told by my Gran from when she Lived in Wavertree .
She was always told by her mum not to look at the clock face that looked down Picton road, apparently if you where about to hear bad news or die a hideous face instead of the clock face would appear maybe a local old wives  tale but meany of the older residents be leaved it [/u]

I have vague memories of my mum's mother saying something similar although I don't recall it being the Picton clock. (It may have been) Then again, she was as nutty as a fruit cake and so....who knows!  Laughing

That clock face went AWOL , in fact ' Spirited away '  he! he !.......a few years back and lots were up in arms over it......It  turned out  to be the the Corpy who  took it away for a Spruce up ,, it soon reappeared again

Ah, the finger of suspicion was on the corpy....gotta hand it to them., they did spruce it up well.
I would imagine lots of people were chiming on about it, but on the face of it....ok...ok....I'll go.....
