Trivia

A new standing set at Trafford Wharf Road was unveiled in November 2013, with shooting moved there at the beginning of 2014. The previous Street set at Granada's Quay Street home was meticulously moved brick-by-brick (down to the location and size of puddles), though the opportunity was taken to upgrade the house sizes (thus the Rovers Return now has two upper windows). Fifty-four thousand reclaimed Salford cobbles were used in the two-year job. The lot now covers 7.7 acres. See more »

Can't miss it
23 May 2004 | by gmb_996See all my reviews

My mother was Scottish and my dad was British, so I was raised on watching Coronation Street. For the last 35 years (at least) not a week has gone by with catching up at the Rover's return. Unfortunately, here in Canada we seem to be quite behind the times, we are at the stage where Peter is revealed as a bigamist, Martin admits to the affair with Katie etc...etc... But I will continue to watch C.S.loyally. I'm addicted, and so is my wife of 10 years. She wasn't to fussy at the beginning but after watching now, it would be instant death if I didn't get her up at 8 a.m. for our 2 hour Sunday constitutional.

Our next trip to England we hope maybe for a tour of the set. It would be the icing on the cake, if I could surprise her with this holiday treat. Thanks for allowing me this moment to reflect on the great time we've had watching and will continue to watch our favorite show
