Battle of Hastings

The historian in me noticed that the post by MJ - 'Roll Up the Rim to Win Update' - was post number 1066, which was the year of the Battle of Hastings, which was of course critical in the founding of modern Britain, which of course is critical in the creation of Coronation Street, which of course is critical to all of our happiness.

And oddly enough it was the first year Corrie first broadcast.

1066 - a banner year all around!

1066? Ken's not looking bad for his age then.
