If you're wondering which church was used for the Coronation Street filming of Leanne and Peter's wedding blessing, then here's everything you need to know.
The church used was St Mary’s Church in Prestwich.
The church has been seen on Corrie before as it was used as the location for Peter Barlow’s bigamous marriage to Shelley, and Jason Grimshaw’s and Sarah-Louise Platt’s doomed nuptials, plus it was the place where Fred Elliot would have married fiancee Bev, were he not dying in the arms of Audrey at the time.
The church was also used for the funerals of Mike Baldwin and Liam Connor, as well as the place where Emily Bishop nearly met her doom at the hands of a madman, and the place where Sarah-Louise’s daughter Bethany was almost killed by her own grandmother, says the MEN.
Here is the church's own website.
edited to add: I've been there as well! It's a lovely little church tucked away off a main road.
