Victoria Street is the next street to the south of Coronation Street in Weatherfield. The street originally started at a junction with Viaduct Street running westwards to form a T-junction with the end of Rosamund Street and continuing. Originally Hardcastle's Mill and the Glad Tidings Mission Hall fronted onto Victoria Street, the rear parts of which overlooked Coronation Street, including the vestry where Ena Sharples resided until 1968 when Weatherfield Council had them both demolished to make way for new maisonettes. The maisonnettes were demolished in the early 1970s after an electrical fault was discovered after their construction, which had resulted in the tragic death of Valerie Barlow. The Mark Brittain Warehouse and a Community Centre was built in their place. The warehouse was badly damaged in a fire in 1975 which also led to the death of Edna Gee. The block was redeveloped once again in 1989 and now comprises a mixed use development of town houses, retail units, including Audrey's hair salon and The Kabin newsagent and sub post office, flats and industrial units comprising Websters' Auto Centre and factory unit Underworld. That development saw the blocking off of the easternmost end of Victoria Street at its junction with Viaduct Street so the street now stops short at Rosamund Street with the exception of the Street Cars taxi office which is located behind Audrey's.
