Manchester Evening News competition winner Mrs Denise Thomas joined Corrie cast members and Producer, Stuart Blackburn, yesterday (Thursday 22nd August) to lay the last official cobble on the ITV soap’s new set at MediaCityUK.
Whilst building work continues across the site, the laying of the last cobble on the new street is an important milestone in the creation of the programme’s new home.
Construction is expected to continue until the end of 2013. Coronation Street will remain at its present home of Quay Street until they move to MediaCityUK at a date to be agreed in due course.
