Scenes of a major new drama are being filmed in Wigan this month. World On Fire.

Don't tell Tonker, but Kendal Street (Wigan) will be pretending to be a street in Manchester. Or some part of Manchester. Though being 1938, I don't think it will be Greater Manchester.

Indeed. I think the old courts (interior) are doubling as a nightclub in Europe. DW Stadium being used as base for the crew, catering etc.

Kendal street is indeed a nightmare. every part of it is double parked. I have to attend fly tips regularly at the backs of those houses and then I have to turn onto Kendal St, almost impossible sometimes.

Yep, that's it exactly and the bend halfway down makes it worse, because you can't see if any traffic is coming the other way.

The bend halfway down is exactly what the tv people wanted. The heroine's house is right on it. Concave (side if that makes sense).

Just had a look at Kendal Street on Gooogle Earth and I can see why they want that part of it, on that bend as a film set, because all of the houses have been done up in the same original type of style, with stone lintels etc and all the chimchimeneys are the same, they could have been built has a film set Smile

Yes, SB. Also,  I was wrong about the house of the heroine being on the bend, its more like just off it going towards Frog Lane.


Also, the interior of the Old Courts is being used as a setting for a Prague club.

Very Happy I meant pretend living. It's what them actor types do. I suppose if it rains it won't matter, as Manchester is also a rainy place.

Kendal Street doesn't go to Frog Lane.
