Manchester – home of Britain’s longest-running soap, Coronation Street.

Despite its recent location change, Coronation Street has been filmed in Manchester ever since its very first episode aired on ITV on 9th December 1960 .Local writer Tony Warren created the show based on his experiences in the close knit communities in the terraced streets around Manchester Docks. The actual street that the show was based on, Archie Street, was in Ordsall, but was demolished in the 1960′s. However, St Clement’s Church is still standing and so we can still pinpoint where the original street was.
