> Rat Run Granada Studios Tunnels 📍
Known as the ‘rat run’ tunnels, this labyrinth of underground passageways and rooms is formed from a Grade II-listed colonnaded railway viaduct (circa 1870) with some parts stretching into the cellars of the Bonded Warehouse (circa 1867). The viaduct itself is supported by a series of cast-iron columns on stone bases.
The colonnaded viaduct itself is a listed structure (along with much of the area due to it’s significant role in the heritage of passenger railways) and as such Historic England have a page about it. Fascinating to think that there is a tunnel directly underneath Coronation Street! You can see a whole collection of photos and a video of the arches and tunnels, along with the leftovers from years of filming on the excellent Granada Gallery site.
