Coronation Street from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of the Coronation Street set Manchester after it was abandoned at the end of filming.. This is the Manchester Studios set used from 1982 until 2014, after which it was replaced with a new set at Trafford Wharf . The original was Loosely modelled on Archie Street in Salford which was extant when the program started in 1960 but was demolished in 1971 as part of the Salford Urban renewals. This image was taken after filming ceased in 2014 and the set lies abandoned with buildings boarded up. I also have images of the set in its hayday and the new set that replaced it.
