Today was another “biggie” with a visit to TV s Coronation set that is being closed down at Xmas and has moved to another site and this is the last chance people will get to see the amazing set of Corrie that has been a family favourite for well over 50 yrs and seen all around the world,Ken Barlow played by William Roache since day one is the longest “soapie” star ever .It is definately worth a visit and our tour guide was brilliant so take a walk down the cobbled street you will NOT be disappointed !  Annie was ecstatic !! How can we ever forget Elsie Tanner.Ena Sharples,Rita,Len,Deidre (now deceased in real life at 60!) and many many more…After the walkabout we ventured into the Science of Manchester Museum and had a quick look on how the milling industry of yesteryear
