This 7.7 acre facility provides film, production and support facilities for one of ITV’s Coronation Street

A total of 54,000 cobbles have been used, many recovered from canal side developments in Salford and Eccles and there are over 400,000 facing bricks on the lot, of which 144,000 were reclaimed from a derelict Salford street. Every last idiosyncrasy of the set had to be duplicated - so, for example, if the brickwork was ‘bad’ on a particular building on the old set, it had to be equally ‘bad’ on the new one.

It has taken over 60 organisations and over 3,000 people to create and build Coronation Street’s new home. [CW]

From Bland to Grand

A property owner in Bognor Regis has successfully transformed the appearance of his home with the help of Marley Eternit’s Cedral Weatherboard.

Being as quick and easy to install as timber meant that the owner, with the help of his joiner son, was able to install the Cedral Weatherboard cladding in just a weekend, minimising labour costs in the process.

“I chose Cedral Weatherboard as it is a substantial material and looked extremely good in comparison to plastic-based boarding”, said Mr Fish, the homeowner. “My son and I attended a ‘Cedral Weatherboard Training Road Show’ organised by Marley Eternit at Covers of Chichester and this proved to be very useful when we came to fitting the product.”
