Sheffield: A Civilised Place Guided walk

Saturday, 7th September 2024

11:00 am to 1:30 pm

Start at Sheffield Cathedral Forecourt

Free

The walk will set off from the Cathedral Forecourt on Church Street and is suitable for all abilities, including mobility scooters and push-chairs.
This event is part of Sheffield Walking Festival, Heritage Open Days and Science Live.
Join the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) for a guided walk along an easy-going city centre discovering trail of 2.5 miles to explore how engineering has developed the city of Sheffield.
Sheffield is a civilised city and this walk shows something of how this has been achieved. You will see buildings and structures, various forms of transport (road, rail, tram and water) and the bridges they need. While you won’t see hidden essentials like water supply and drainage, you will learn something about where they are, as well as seeing different materials being used in different forms – all designed and constructed by engineers applying science and using engineering principles.
FREE event, but booking is essential as places are limited.
Book online through the links on the event web page:  booking page available early August.
