The Curious Case of Rosamund Street

(This post was originally posted by Chewy on the Coronation Street Blog in July 2014.)

I was watching the behind the scenes video of the latest Corrie promo on ITV's Youtube, when I noticed something slightly odd about Rosamund Street, it seems to have gone.

Visitors to the tour will probably know that back at Granada there used to be a mural on the other side of the Rosamund Street arch, to give the illusion of the street continuing on.

 Though the mural wasn't often shown in the show itself, with shots down Rosamund Street often being blocked by a Newton and Ridley's van, on the new set, it seems there is a whole new row of shops that have sprung up where the mural used to be.

I don't actually mind this new row of shops springing up, as it opens up new opportunities for storylines and shops. It's just going to seem odd that the only properties on Rosamund Street are Barlow's Buys and the medical centre, especially since Roys Rolls, Sunliner's Travel Agency and Rita's Kabin used to be somewhere on an unseen part of Rosamund Street.

Perhaps this new row of shops will actually be the modern day locations of those businesses? Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing the new street (Rosamund Street.? Mawdsley Street? Tile Street?) in the show in the coming months.
