Welcome to rivertees.co.uk!
We are here to supply you with all the latest, relevant information and history on the River Tees. We aim to give you as much information as we can as the river flows from its source on the eastern slope of Cross Fell to the mouth of the river close to Middlesbrough.
Many people use the river Tees throughout the year for various pastimes, situated close to the mouth is the now nationally acclaimed White Water Centre which offers a white water course for kayaks, canoes, water rafts and water-skis.
The man made river barrage allows the making of the white water course and its other amenities possible. We will look at the River Tees amenities and facilities in a lot more detail as we travel along the river, looking at its history and how it has shaped the Teesside steel industry.
Proud to offer our information on the River Tees we are also very open to any other input or page suggestion. Please feel free to send in any information, articles or upcoming events relating to the river and surrounding areas.
We also offer a FREE advertising service for businesses the length of the river Tees. A opportunity to showcase your business on a dedicated page on this website, please submit a FREE link request and we will add your business. Please contact us if you wish to look at a local dedicated page.
The development of the barrage has really improved the standard of the environment of not only the river Tees but also along the river. People really have reconnected with their local river and the River Tees now welcomes visitors from all over the world!
The regular fish counts are testament to the improvement of the rivers health, with rod catches far higher than in the 80’s,90’s and early 2000. Many local people do not realise that without the River Tees most of the industry simply would not exist.
