World of Coronation Street Tour - Day Four
People coming to Manchester often assume we have a lovely Corrie shop where you can get souvenirs. Sadly, it’s not the case. So we work with internet shops who sell Corrie items to get hold of a range of products which we put on sale in the hotel. This morning the sale took place before we set off to Worsley. This is where Martha lured Ken onto her barge!
Today was less Corrie and more countryside so our next call was the lovely town of Clitheroe where we looked around the shops and some walked up to the Norman Castle. We also passed locations used in Born and Bred, Calendar Girls and Great Creatures Great and Small before arriving at Skipton, whre we enjoyed the quaint shops and cafes.
Next we drove over the picturesque moors and through Colne, where we paused to see the monument to Wallace Hartley, the bandleader on the Titanic. Then we had shopping time at the Boundary Mills store before a lovely fish and chip supper.
