The Civil Engineers' Club
Institution of Civil Engineers


The Walking Section has five or six walks a year in the south of England. Walks take place on Saturdays and are normally circular, starting from a railway station with a break for a pub lunch. The first and last walks of the year are often in London to avoid having to negotiate muddy tracks. London-based walks also offer flexibility to use public transport to break off along the route if necessary.

The Walking Section introduced a summer Walking Weekend in 2013. The first event was held in the Peak District and it proved to be very popular and enjoyable. These have been followed with weekends in Wiltshire and Hereford, Church Stretton, Shropshire, Yorkshire and Dorset.  This year’s Walking Weekend was held in June in the Gower Peninsular Wales:

Walking Weekend 6/7 June 2020

The proposed details for our Walking Weekend in Northumberland on 6th – 7th June 2020 are in the link below:

Civil Engineers Club Walking Weekend June 2020

The area has a dramatic coastline and many places of interest such as Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh Castle, Cragside, Holy Island, which you can visit whilst in the area.

We will try to cater for any friends, partners or wives who wish to opt out the walks with a visit to places of interest.

The plan is to try and obtain preferential rates for accommodation for the group at the Hog’s Head Inn south of Alnwick. The Hog’s Head Inn should be large enough for the group, but there are smaller alternatives available for anyone who wishes to stay elsewhere.

Saturday 26 September: To be arranged.

Saturday 7 November: To be arranged.

It would be helpful if you could let me know if you plan to join us.

Thanks and best regards,
