A look back ....

One more Coronation Street tour to do in October and then I'm hanging up the guide's microphone for the last time.  Over the past 18 years I've had the great pleasure to meet Corrie fans from around the world and to share with them visits to so many filming locations and of course, to the studios themselves.
I thought I would share some of the pictures from those tours with you.

Where it started - this 1979 episode is the first one I can recall watching with my grannie. Tracy Barlow was feared dead - too bad she survived!
