Bath’s Civil Engineering Heritage Trail.

Back to Guided Walks page

Bath is known for its Georgian architecture but this urban walk tours some of the sites of its fascinating civil engineering and industrial heritage that "underpins" its existence. Bring a drink/munchie; cafe lunch together afterwards if you wish.

Led by two Chartered Engineers, this walk circles the urban centre of Bath starting at the site of the previous Midland Railway terminus, then following roads, river, and canal paths to visit surprisingly important sites that have shaped society over millennia. Light walking shoes only needed.


This walk is organised by Cotswold Voluntary Wardens, the voluntary arm of the Cotswolds Conservation Board. These walks offer an interesting and often entertaining way of exploring our wonderful Cotswold countryside and landscape. All walks by the Voluntary Wardens are FREE OF CHARGE however donations are welcome and help us to take care of the countryside.

PLEASE: always remember to wear appropriate footwear because some walks may be steep and muddy in places. Dogs are not allowed on walks, except guide dogs and hearing dogs. It is advisable to check the website or call the Cotswolds Conservation Board (01451 862000) beforehand for details of any changes, particularly during bad weather.
