Putting Coronation Street on the map

Coronation Street surveyor - main shotOur surveyors roam the length and breadth of the country, but it’s not every day that they get to visit Britain’s most famous cobbled street. We’re always talking about making 10,000 changes a day to the master map of Great Britain and keeping the 460 million features in our database up-to-date – and our latest changes include the new set of Coronation Street!

The new map follows the recent move of the Coronation Street lot from ITV’s Quay Street studios to its new purpose built state-of-the-art home in Trafford. With updates ranging from changes in kerb lines to the addition of new roads, houses and retail properties, it’s not surprising to see the Street being captured in our most detailed mapping, OS MasterMap.

If you’re a fan of the Weatherfield soap, take a look at our map, with extra information added including house numbers, character details and the names of the famous shops and focal points including the Rovers Return and the Kabin. You’ll see that Carla doesn’t have far to walk to work, while the Rovers is only a hop, skip and a jump away for Ken and Deirdre.

Coronation Street is one of the most famous streets in the country; however, it is only one of 87 other Coronation Streets which feature on our database. Not to mention 171 Coronation Roads, 93 Coronation Avenues, 2 Coronation Mews and 8 Coronation Squares. However, there are only four other Rovers Returns in Great Britain, compared to 54 Woolpacks and 14 Queen Victoria’s.
