The docksides by the canal were converted into luxury apartments and named Weatherfield Quays.

A 1975 artists' impression of Weatherfield. There are many errors in terms of established programme continuity such as Victoria Street not backing onto Coronation Street and Jubilee Terrace not continuing on the far side of the viaduct from the Street.

BackgroundEdit

Granada is very strong on creating as authentic a background for the street as possible basing it on real Manchester data. All the telephone numbers begin 0161 and the River Irwell is said to run through Weatherfield.
