Golf Course Reach

Here we are looking downstream past Eaglescliffe Golf Course (on the left) toward the location of Teesside High School. In the foreground is the lowest “peg” of a popular angling reach – when fishing competitions are being held Tees boathouse crews should turn here and go back downstream. The “turning peg” is some 7500 metres (4.66 miles) upstream of the boathouse giving quite a useful round trip for endurance training.

Taken about 1000 metres upstream of the previous picture I include this one for no better reason that it serves to show yet again what an attractive river the Tees now is. Bear in mind that, as the crow flies, this is less than 4 miles south of Stockton High Street. A little further upstream the River Leven joins the Tees. From this confluence it is only some 1500 metres (just under a mile) up to Yarm Bridge.
