Props

The bulk of my collection is made up of genuine props from across Coronation Street history, many of which were acquired following the closure of the Corrie Tour. You can see more about that here.

Weatherfield General ID Badge

This is a genuine used on screen ID badge from Weatherfield General Hospital. Inside of a plastic clip holder, and bearing the name 'S. Harris', 'Auxiliary'. This was recovered when the Corrie Tour closed.

Bet and Alec's Carriage Clock

This is the carriage clock featured in episodes 3431 (31st August 1992) and 3432 (2nd September 1992). The Gilroy's were set for a new life in Southampton, and Betty used money collected in the Rovers from the regulars to purchase this clock for them as a leaving present. Eventually, Alec left Weatherfield alone and Bet stayed for a few more years. The clock was eventually donated by Roy Barraclough to the Daisy Nook Corrie exhibiton, which is where we obtained it. With thanks to previous owner Mark Llewellin for the letter of authenticity. 

Webster's Autocentre Receipt

This receipt and service report has come direct from Kevin Webster's desk. Used mainly as set dressing to give more authenticity to the garage. 

Streetcars Business Card

Once again this prop is direct from the set. This authentic business card advertises the infamous 'Streetcars' taxi firm. 

Classic Newton and Ridley Beermats

I have five of these 1970s style Newton and Ridley beermats, each has one purple side and one white side. On one beermat, the white side is signed by Bill Waddington (Percy Sugden). The circular beermat is probably the oldest in my collection, as is dated July 3rd 1975 on the rear. I also have a beermat (pictured last) that is possibly from the Granada Studios Tour.

Modern Newton and Ridley Beermats

I have nine of these modern style Newton and Ridley beermats in my collection. Three of them are signed by legendary Corrie actors William Roache (Ken Barlow), Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley Cropper) and Sue Nicholls (Audrey Roberts).

Funeral Plaques

These funeral plaques were all recovered from the Corrie Tour when it closed in December 2015. The plaques are for characters Alf Roberts, Blanche Hunt, Des Barnes, Don Brennan and Joy Fishwick

Carla and Frank's Wedding Seating Plan

This large framed seating plan was hung in Nick's Bistro for the wedding of Carla Connor and Frank Foster in 2011. This was another prop acquired following the closure of the Corrie Tour. 

Weatherfield Gazette - 21st December 1992

This copy of the Weatherfield Gazette is from late 1992, and is probably still sat in The Kabin today. Recent years of the show have often seen multiple editions of the paper in one scene at once, with Rita simply amassing a collection of them.

Painting of Nicky Tilsley

This painting of Nick Tilsley by Hayley Cropper was created on the show in 1998 when Nick was life modelling and the Cropper's stumbled into the class. It is signed by Julie Hesmondhalgh.

Hayley's Payslip

This payslip is used in episode 4452 (9th August 1998), when Mike Baldwin questions Alma about why Hayley's name is 'Harold' on the tax register. 

Signed cover of The Weatherfield Gazette

This edition of The Weatherfield Gazette is signed by William Roache (Ken Barlow) and Chris Gasgoyne (Peter Barlow) and features a story regarding the opening of 'The Joinery' and Ken's plans to stop it. 

Roys Rolls Tablemat

Signed by Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley) and David Neilson (Roy), this tablemat comes straight from a table in the famous Roy's Rolls cafe! 

Newton and Ridley Pump Sign

I really do not have a clue where this pump sign is from. Possibly the set, but more than likely the Granada Studios Tour.

Sunliners Travel Agency Leaflet

Fancy a holiday? This leaflet prop is from the QE2 direct-to-VHS special that was released in 1995. Alec Gilroy worked for the travel agency and upon his return to Weatherfield in 1996, worked in the Rosamund Street branch.
