Friday 3 August
First stop today was Worsley and we saw where Ken was led astray by Martha and her canal boat. A lovely little spot! Then we made our way to Bury where we saw the ‘prison’ John Stape was in plus the railway where Roy and Hayley’s wedding trip was filmed (Thomas the Tank Engine was in the station!). We had free time to explore the bustling market with its local specialities like Black Pudding and tripe before taking a scenic route back through Salford (and seeing where Tony Warren lived) and into Manchester.
There was a bit of free time before we met up at the lovely Midland Hotel for a gala dinner with guest Debbie Rush who plays Anna Windass. There were lots of surprises too - including a special DVD to watch, gifts and prizes!
