ICE Yorkshire and Humber is helping to inspire the engineers of the future with the launch of its 'City of Hull Engineering Walk', promoting the unique and rich history of the city.

The walk has been designed to showcase the UK City of Culture's landmarks and their civil engineering significance – from clean, cutting edge contemporary designs to the timeless engineering of our industrial-age heritage.

Comprising 14 of Hull's monuments and significant structures, the walk ranges from the Hull Tidal Barrier and Holy Trinity Church to the Queen's Gardens and City Walls and Citadel.

Penny Marshall, ICE Regional Director for Yorkshire and Humber, said: "Civil engineers help to shape our world and improve lives, and the walk has been designed to celebrate some of the fascinating structures and landmarks that Hull has to offer. It's important to recognise the role of engineers in the construction and maintenance of these structures, as well as educate youngsters about the importance of the industry.

"With half term school holidays upon us, together with the extended break over summer, the walk provides the perfect opportunity for visitors to the city in these peak times to take in the very best of Hull and experience its engineering and cultural excellence."

For more information about the Hull Walk and the landmarks along the trail and to download a copy of the leaflet, visit www.ice.org.uk/HullWalk or pick up your free copy from leaflet stands at Hull railway station, Hull & East Riding Museum, Hull Maritime Museum, The Deep or a number of other outlets in the city.
