Adrian Clarkson was a friend of Ken Barlow at Manchester University in the early 1960s. Adrian got married sometime later and had children, and had retired by July 2008 where he met Ken again at a university reunion and the pair talked about the old times. Adrian bought himself a farmhouse to move to. Ken failed to mention the fact that he was still living in Coronation Street - a place he has stayed all his life.
