November 1979: Elsie decides to leave Weatherfield for a new life as a housekeeper in Torquay with Ron Mather. No11 goes on the market for 8,250 - but is taken off again the following month when Elsie returns.

February 1980: Ena Sharples Community Centre flat has to have major repairs and Elsie is the only person to volunteer to put Ena up. After a week Ena decides she has lived long enough with her old protaganist and decamps to St Anne's to stay with her old friend Henry Foster.

He soon gets a job as an apprentice to Len Fairclough - and a girlfriend in machinist Karen Oldfield. When they break up at Christmas 1980, Martin returns to Birmingham saying there is nothing left for him in Weatherfield.

April 1981: Elsie invites Wally Randall to lodge with her. On the day he moves in she makes a play for him; he wasn't expecting it, thought she was a friend and moves straight back out again.

September 1981: Audrey Potter is thrown out by boyfriend Tony Ditchburn, and turns to Elsie to put her up "for a couple of nights". She stays until the November, only moving out when Alf Roberts proposes marriage to her.

November 1981: Landlord Wormold dies and the remaining freeholds to property in Coronation Street are put up for sale. Elsie decides she can't afford the 48 asking price.

May 1982: Marion Willis moves into No11, telling her new fiancee Eddie Yeats that she can't afford her landlord's rent increase. She confides the real reason to Elsie - she was seeeing her landlady's son, Phil Moss, who was a soldier in Ireland, and she wanted to end the relationship. In August Phil returns from Northern Ireland and proclaims his undying love to Marion, who is now engaged to Eddie. She moves out of No11 the same month, saying she needs to to think about the whole situation, and breaks off the engagement. In early September she moves back in again and the engagement is back on.

In 1983 the front room is converted into a bedsit for Marion, and after they marry in November 1983, the Yeats start married life in the front room of No11. Next month they leave for Bury to live with Marion's mothr and help her convalesce after a stroke.

March 2000: Free-spending Gwen Davies avoids the clutches of a debt-collector and moves into No11. Early next month Steve McDonald moves out as he can't stand wrinkly love ! He moves in with Vikram Desai. In three months Gwen has completely redecorated the house, ensuring Jim pays the bill. Temptation gets too much of her when Jim decides to buy the Garage - she is caught trying to escape to London with 35,000 in her handbag. Jim throws her out and burns all the new furniture in the middle to the street to erase her memory.

September 2000: Retaliating for an attack on Steve, Jim beats up Jez Quigley who subsequently dies. Jim confesses to his crime and is kept on remand in prison. Shocked at this, Liz McDonald returns from Milton Keynes the next month and moves into No11. They re-marry in December 2000, but Jim is sentenced to eight years in prison. When he is moved to Leicester Prison early in January 2001 Liz vows to travel with him and the house goes up for sale.

Next month she is joined by her boyfriend Dennis Stringer.

November 2001: Dennis Stringer moves out to share a flat with his lover Janice Battersby. Next month Liz McDonald decides to try and sell the house again, and to bring a rotten end to the year, Eileen sees a "For Sale" sign over No11...

Again there's not much interest, and when in February 2002 Steve McDonald's wife Karen complains about living over the Kabin, he buys No11 from his mother as a surprise. Typically, Karen objects to this, saying she can do better than Coronation Street, so Steve agrees to another six month lease for Eileen. Typically, Karen objects to this, saying she really wanted to live in No11...but Steve prevails and Eileen is allowed to remain in Number 11 with sons Todd and Jason

In 2004, Steve sells the house to help pay for the expensive second wedding that he and Karen have in Feb. The owner keeps renting the house to Eileen. Todd has left for London but Jason still lives there, along with lodger Sean and Jason's girlfriend Violet who moves in Jan. 2005.
