New Studios

The builders are now hard at work on the new ITV studios, which will include a brand new Corrie studio compex.  This (left) is the view from the bridge crossing the Manchester Ship Canal of the site.  Before long the back of the Corrie terraces will be facing us from here, although passers-by won't see much from the outside.

Next to the site is the Imperial War Museum of the North where they have a viewing tower.  If you visit Salford go and have a look (it's £1.20 to go to the top).  The picture (below) was taken from there this week and you can see them marking out the line of the pavement and houses.  The viaduct will be at the bottom of the picture eventually with the health centre at the top.
