    Chatsworth Estate (Shameless), Manchester, October 08

    Chatsworth Estate - Manchester

    Shameless is a comedy/drama about the lives of people on a typical Manchester
    council estate. It was originally filmed outside in Gorton, then a set was built in
    Wythenshawe. Manchester streets are meticulously recreated, though what
    appear to be houses and shops are just facades for outside scenes.


    "Now nobody's saying the Chatsworth Estate is the Garden of Eden
    but it's been a good home to us, to me, Frank Gallagher and me kids.
    Who I'm proud of cos every single one of em reminds me of me.
    They can think for themselves which they've me to thank for."

    Heading into the Chatsworth Estate were


    Bit of a rum un, with a heart of gold. Do anything for anyone... but you got to check your gear.
    And of course, totally Shameless!


    North East lad, though the ASBO means he now has to live in Manchester. Good with guns.


    Well what can I say... I like going equipped.

    "But all of them, to a man, know first and foremost one of the most
    vital necessities in this life, is they know how to throw a party!"


    The Gallaghers’ back yard


    The Maguires’ painted kitchen


    and their extension..


    Behind the scenes:



    It would seem filming is underway at the moment so it was time
    for a quick exit....

    "He he he...SCATTER!"

    "Tickets this way for the Chatsworth Express
    Come and watch pikeys making a mess
    Of the lives they were given by him upstairs
    And kids they're convinced aren't actually theirs

    What sound on earth could ever replace
    Kids needing money and wives in your face
    Cos this, people reckon, and me included,
    Is why pubs and drugs were kindly invented

    To calm us all down, stop us going mental
    These are Chatsworth Estate's basic essentials
    We are worth every penny, we're grinding your axes
    You sit on our head, but you pay the taxes

    Imagine a Britain without Chatsworth buccaneers
    We'll come on your face for the price of a beer
    Make poverty history, cheaper drugs now
    Make poverty history, cheaper drugs now!"
