Event description

Description

Discover what makes Sheffield civilised. This circular walk, lead by Civil Engineer, Mark Calvert, and Francis and Diz Feeley of Step out Sheffield, passes Barker's Pool and the Peace Gardens to the Railway Station and Victoria Quays before reaching the Wicker and returning via Waingate. 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. The route is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs and is a joint venture between the Institution of Civil Engineers and Step Out Sheffield.
