Maybe a Civil Engineering BEng and then do a Geographical MSc ? Or Geology MSc.

Actually that would be quite a good combination.

Civil engineering probably - a lot of the things civil engineers work on (roads, rail, water etc) are big therefore planning these has a geographical element to them.

You will still end up studying the building structures side on a civil engineering degree, as many civil engineers will need to understand bridges, retaining walls and other civil engineering structures.

Civil engineering is a huge employer because it's so broad.

Or maybe environmental engineering? Basically to do with remediation of land and things like that. Arguably a subset of civil, and therefore a bit more niche.

I would say civil engineering. As u need to study geology and soil mechanics during the course. So it’s kind of related to geographical side
