A look at the new set: Coronation Street

Last week, we took a closer look at the new Victoria Street, to see what had changed, this week, we're looking at Coronation Street itself, probably the biggest change you can see above is the top of the Imperial War Museum North's roof, although, I don't think that will be making an appearance in the show itself.

As you have probably read by now, the street is now wide enough to have two cars passing each other, with enough room between them. I can see this adding a little extra touch to scenes set on the street, we might even see the Wayfarer make it's way down the street now! There's also a new ginnel leading from Streetcars on Victoria Street to outside Audrey's Salon.

The Rovers Return is now much much bigger, boasting two upstairs windows, the improved size, makes the interior seem a little more believable now, though the living room will still be in Rosamund Street, no matter how much bigger it grows.

A nice small touch has been added to the viaduct side of the street,
a 'Coronation Street' sign appears to have been placed on the side of The Kabin, it's nothing major, but it's a nice addition, to commemorate the move to the Trafford studios.

Most of Coronation Street has remained the same, when compared to the other streets, most likely due to it being the most iconic, but the small changes they have made will give the street a much grander look, I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks on screen, and of course, playing spot the difference!

Ah yes, a bigger and better, more realistic set... but still remains the old mystery as to how the toilets (bathrooms/washrooms to us Canadian viewers) in the pub exist without supposedly pushing into No. 1 where Dreary Barlowe lives and where do the cars go to park at night???

The cars go to the same place the children/babies do - the cupboard.

Not to be picky, but wouldn't the kitchen in the back of the pub be on Rosamund Street with the living room facing the back yard?

How are the writers going to explain the sudden appearance of the new window? I really hope it's explained somehow as it will drive me nuts otherwise! I still haven't got over the stairs sapping ends at number 4- Micky

The window is easy to explain. It had been out of the country for years and just came back to engage in meaningless plots going nowhere.

There's a perfectly simple explanation for the location of the kitchen, the toilets, the upstairs flat and so on: transdimensional engineering.

I hope that window didn't come back with a personality transplant.

I think we're meant to believe that the new window was put in after the fire last year...? Or am I just wrong assuming?

From my vantage point, it seems as though the sign installer pictured in the lower photo is headless!???
