New Corrie set about to open

You'll probably have seen all the pictures of the new Corrie set at Salford Quays.  Filming will begin there in January following the Christmas break.  It is, of course, bigger than the current one and as such there are a few adjustments such as the odd extra window here and there.  This picture (courtesy of ITV) shows the back yards.  The yards for Coronation St are on the right but on the left are the yards of the street behind.  They've always had these on the current set but they are now a bit bigger and will, no doubt, be used for aerial shots.  Who knows - maybe we'll see the occasional neighbour emerge from a yard now?

The current set, which dates back to the 80s, will be opened to the public for a few months in 2014 and will then be demolished.
