Sheffield: A Civilised Place

09 Sep 2023 11:00 - 13:30

An easy-going two-mile city centre discovery trail exploring how engineering has developed the city of Sheffield.

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.

See different materials being used in different forms - all designed and constructed by engineers, applying science and using engineering principles and learn how special steels contribute to our world and learn about the key people involved in their inventions.
