Walking through Worcester’s engineering heritage, Worcester

About this event

This evening riverside walk will look at examples of past engineering works and how some of our familiar surroundings may be more important than we think. The walk will be about 2.5 miles and take about 1.5 hours. It will be entirely on surfaced footways, without gates or stiles. Over nearly 2000 years engineering has changed the face of Worcester.

Over the past few generations engineering has responded to the rapidly changing technical and social demands from the local population. As we move around our locality it is easy to overlook the importance engineering assets around us with which we are so familiar.

If weather conditions are poor please contact Peter King - [email protected] or 07444 860615.

Meet near/ outside Café Viaduct.


Peter King

The walk will be led by Peter King, who retired in 2015 after over 40 years in civil engineering. He worked on a wide range of projects in UK and overseas, including many projects in Worcestershire. More recently he has come to recognise how we take much of our built infrastructure for granted.
