Clarence Street in Salford was the setting for a theatrical boarding house run by Poppy Watts where Rita Fairclough fled to in January 1980 when her marriage to Len Fairclough hit the rocks.


A real Clarence Street does exist in the Lower Broughton area of Salford and it runs through the area where shots were taken for both the 1975 and 1976 title sequences. Whether the location was used for shots of the street in its appearance in Episode 1960 (14th January 1980) is not known.
