Tees Barrage L1

Sitting on our most northerly river, the River Tees, is the Canal & River Trust's own angelic attraction of the north – the Tees Barrage.

It's part of a newly formed Tees Barrage Park that pulls together the barrage structure itself, the Tees Active white water course and the nearby nature reserves on the north and south side of the river managed by the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust.

All of these features – the barrage, the activity centre, two nature reserves – are well interlinked with cycle ways / footpaths winding though.

The mooring site offers space for 15 vessels across a number of fixed pontoons.

Additional Information

The moorings are behind a large gate, which can be opened with a standard CRT key.

There is toilet and shower access from the outside of the south tower (CRT key needed). These facilities are provided by and under the control of the region Canal & River Trust team, and do not form part of the mooring agreement.

Electric and water is supplied on the pontoons. Please note that electric supply is via cards (which can be purchased online), not via the Smartmeter system.

Car Parking - an open car park provided by the local waterway, moorers can use it but they do not have any priority over others at this site.

All customer items must be stored on boats and not on the surrounding land areas.

This is a leisure site and is determined by us to be a mooring site for the storage of boats between leisure use, customers may well spend weekends on this site, and occasionally longer periods, but it is not sold as, or intended to be suitable for long term residential use. This site does not have local authority planning consent for residential use, neither does it have the level of facilities and service expected of such a mooring. As such the offer that we have is only intended to meet the needs of a leisure boater.

Day-to-day maintenance at this site is provided by the Tees Barrage team.
