Country pub with Corrie connections

There's a Derbyshire pub called the Lantern Pike Inn which has some wonderful Corrie connections.

It says here that Tony Warren wrote the first six episodes of Coronation Street in 1960 in the pub. There's an affectionate, signed letter from Tony Warren and portraits of some the cast including Pat Phoenix, who played Elsie Tanner and Violet Carson who played Ena Sharples, to prove it. Next year, the locals plan to celebrate the 50th anniversary with a Coronation Street quiz night and Betty's hotpot.

The Lantern Pike Inn is at 45 Glossop Road, Little Hayfield, High Peak, Derbyshire and you can view it online here: http://www.lanternpikeinn.co.uk/
