Coronation Street is the primary setting of the ITV British Soap Opera Coronation Street and has featured in the series since the very beginning. Originally a more quiet back street, the street has seen a rise in crimes in the last 15 years.
Construction of Coronation Street begun in late 1901. It was completed in the summer of 1902 and the first residents moved into the street in August 1902. The other side of the street had the The Mission Hall and Ellistons Raincoat Factory. One end of the terraced side had The Rovers Return and the other end had the Corner Shop. That end of the street faced Viaduct Street and The Railway Viaduct.
