The history of Norwich’s bridges will be explored at a walking tour this weekend.

The free guided walk along the river Wensum is part of the bicentenary celebrations of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

An experienced engineer will give an insight into the significance of civil engineering and infrastructure and tell the story of Norwich’s bridges.

The two mile walk will start at Norwich Railway Station from 10.45am on Sunday and should take about an hour to complete.

Places must be booked in advance at www.ice.org.uk/events/walk-along-the-river-wensum-in-norwich

City leaders recently adopted the River Wensum Strategy - a vision for a revival of the river.

Among proposals put forward in the strategy, which could happen over the next decade, are a river festival, a completed riverside walk and better moorings for boats.
