Shelving rocks in River Tees
Shelving rocks in River Tees
In Canoeists' parlance, the "Upper Tees" usually means the section paddled from below High Force, to a take-out either at Wynch bridge, or better, river left just below the Newbiggin footbridge. The river flows in a channel under the centre arch of the bridge and forms a small playwave, the last for several kilometres. The level in this photograph is a bit low for paddling, a couple of frosty nights having halted the snowmelt and locked up the water in the surface soils, but the level reveals the shelving rocks on the left that form an ideal place to take out after a river trip. From here, the footpath leads up to the road and convenient parking at Newbiggin Village.
