About this event

Try to imagine what life in Worcester would have been like in the middle of the 18th century before the Engineers:

  • A medieval bridge spanned the river, but very few people travelled far as the roads were poor and few people could afford a horse
  • There were no cars, no trains, no electricity and no gas
  • Few had clean water and sewage would have gone straight into the river
  • Education was basic and few could read, even if they could have afforded books
  • Phones and the internet were still far in the future

These short guided walks, are an opportunity to hear and see some of the works that engineers have contributed to our modern society.

Three guided walks are offer with start times at 11:00, 13:00 and 14:30.

The distance is about 1 mile and the duration approximately 1 hour.

The walk is not strenuous and the route is suitable for wheelchair users.

Public parking is available close to the start point in The Hive car park, Newport St carpark or Grand Stand Road car park. Foregate St station and Worcester bus station are also only a short walk away.
