Image for Tees Barrage

Completion of the Tees Barrage in 1995 limited the Tees' tidal reach, and created upstream an exciting new wetland sports and leisure area for Teeside. If it's on water, you can do it here: windsurfing, water-skiing, sailing, rowing, angling - even powerboat racing and white water rafting. Also at the barrage are a David Lloyd Health & Sport Club, Beefeater restaurant, hotel and caravan site.

The barrage itself is an impressive structure and includes a fish-pass (with viewing area), navigation lock and canoe slalom. There is no access to the barrage itself, although a visitor centre is planned.
