Cotherstone to Barnard Castle

5km of grade 2 on the river Tees

Gentle section of the Tees which runs when other sections are too low, or combined with them to make for a longer trip. A couple of surf waves help to maintain the interest.

Getting There

Putin · Takeout

Put on where the Balder joins the Tees. Plenty of parking down a small lane in Cotherstone, sign posted "to the river." Take out either above the big weir before Barnard Castle, using HMYO car park, or at various points in BC or combine with Abbey Rapids for an exciting finish.
