Naylor Lintels used in construction of new Coronation Street set

Naylor Lintels used in construction of new Coronation Street set
01/11/2013

Soap chiefs have moved Weatherfield from Manchester to nearby Salford so they have more space for filming. Builders have recreated The Rovers Return, The Kabin and Dev’s corner shop as well as the characters’ homes down to every minute detail. Coronation Street links up with Rosamund Street, where the medical centre is situated. Audrey’s Salon and the Street Cars office are across the road. Mawdsley Street, Webster’s Garage and Underworld are also part of the set at MediaCityUK. Builders have laid about 11,000 cobbles, 190,000 bricks of different types and used seven colours of mortar so it looks realistic on HD TV screens. The set was indoor when the soap began in 1960 with three-quarter-size houses and cobbles painted on the floor. It was based on a street in Salford. The previous set, almost full size and outdoor, was opened by the Queen in 1982. The new set is full size so two cars will be able to pass each other on the Street. Broughton Brickwork used Naylor lintels whilst building the Coronation Street lots. McCorys also used Naylor lintels for the building the production building which they were responsible for.
