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. Image available for editorial use only.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
