Maybe they should have a storyline where Wetherfield Council tarmac the street, to the disgust of the residents (when really the cobbles have actually been moved to their new home) - in which the street gets together to get the cobbles reinstated, eventually winning, just in time for the new set to open! :lol:

Storyline (c) Chogmook :cheers:
Chez Locke has been discussing this and we think that a large scale gas main explosion is the way to go - they can move everyone out for a month or two (of Corrie-time) and then when they all move back it is into the apparently re-built street (to whit the new set). Also an opportunity to get rid of some characters ...

Im sure there will be some storyline involved but as I understand it its a case of packing up filming at the old set on a friday and first day of filming at the new set on the monday. No break in filming.

I did see an article about Bill Roache testing out the new cobbles, so they might have been laid already?

What a load of old Sun! The only thing correct is that it is a photo of Bill. He is pictured actually off set there, heading to the canteen or the admin area.

The new set hasn't begun yet aside from structural work. The old set will remain until vacated, cobbles and all, with the new set being built using totally separate items made to match exactly the present lot. Not one cobble will leave Castlefield for Trafford Park.

Not taken from the best angle - but noticed yesterday that the structure of the houses on the street itself is on it's way up. You can see the red frame to the right of the studios :)
If you also look through the building/studio to the other side can also be seen red framework which is probably the terrace itself. the framework that is more clearer maybe the where the surgery/chippy and apartments are then down towards Victoria Street.

The streets really coming along now! You can make out particular houses now!


Zoomed in -On the right hand side is the Salon, with the three non-terrace houses at an angle to the left of it. Then next to Gail's is the factory and garage. And the houses and Rovers' with their back to us.:)

How much has this set been scaled up compared the the current set? Will the houses be normal house height now?

How are they going to make it look exactly like the current street? Or is there going to be a storyline where Roy and Norris go a bit mental and blow the street up?
Their pretty good at set building and making something new look like something they used in the previous series in the film business. This will be the third time the sets been replaced.

Is it splitting hairs but won't it be the fourth. If we count the first indoor street set from 1960. Then from mid late 60s the first outdoor street then from 1983 the current one.
