River Tees

Description of River Tees: Up until 1995 when the Tees Barrage was built below Stockton this was a wholly tidal river. Now there are 11 miles of non-tidal freshwater above the barrage which are used for pleasure boating. Below the barrage there are 13 miles of tidal water to the mouth of the river where it joins the North Sea
For the History of this waterway see the History page.
