Explore Engineering: a civilised place walk, Sheffield

About this event

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.

You will not see hidden essentials like water supply and drainage, but you will learn something about where they are. You will see different materials being used in different forms – all designed and constructed by engineers applying science and using engineering principles.

Join David Tattersall as he points out some of Sheffield’s most recognisable landmarks built with the knowledge and expertise of civil engineering including The Winter Garden, Millennium Galleries and Sheffield Passenger Transport Interchange.

The route is suitable for both pushchairs and wheelchairs, and there are bus and tram stops along some sections of the route.

The walk will take place on Friday 21 June and again on Sunday 23 June.

Meet at Sheffield Cathedral for the walk starting at 10.45am.
