Coronation Street may be saved for the nation

English Heritage is deciding whether the old Coronation Street set in Manchester qualifies as a place of historic interest, according to a report in the Sunday Mirror.

The soap’s old outdoor set is under consideration for listing and could be turned into a tourist attraction. The show moved from its Manchester studios to Salford Quays in 2010 but the original set still stands and is an iconic place for millions of fans who have grown up with the 51-year-old ITV soap.

From 1988 the set was part of Granada Studio’s tour but the company stopped offering tours in 1999.

A source from the English Heritage told the Sunday Mirror: “There’s a really good chance it will be grated listed status in April.”
