First Photos from the new Corrie set

Today's the day that the new outdoor set at MediaCity is being presented to the media. Our Flaming Nora and Sunny Jim are there and will report back tomorrow. In the meantime, here's a few photos gleaned from @itvcorrie 's twitter feed.  There is also a gallery on the website of Manchester Evening News here.

As you can see, they've replanted a tree in front of Audrey's Salon. This is apparently a 40 foot tree and the largest ever to be replanted in the U.K.

The new Rovers has a second window upstairs. Makes it look somewhat less of a Tardis when you hear about all the bedrooms and living arrangements in there.

They've used reclaimed cobbles to pave the Street and they do look suitably old and worn.

Tony Warren approves and says they're all his favourite houses.

This one is from the MEN and it shows a detail from the Rovers' window with the new required food rating notice in accordance to a new UK law.

Here's a tweet from @itvcorrie on the new Mawdsley Street as well.

See our Fab Photo for an aerial view taken during construction

There's also loads of great links on the MEN site all about the Coronation Street set over the years over here.

ITV have updated their website with more photos and a time lapse video of the construction site and it's got a good montage video and if you aren't in the UK, you can see the montage video via the Manchester Evening News site through this blog post.

Here's a video tour from the Mirror's website. And unless I'm very much mistaken, the couple walking down the street from Audrey's salon, she in a purple coat and he in red, is our very own Flaming Nora and Sunny Jim.
