Low Force Waterfalls

Low Force is an 18-foot (5.5m) high set of falls in the Tees Valley, England. Further upstream is the High Force waterfall.[1] Low Force is also the site of the Wynch Bridge, completed in 1830. It is suggested that only one person at a time should cross the bridge as it may be unstable.

Low Force is within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and European Geopark

It was first descended on SUP by renowned international SUP athlete Chris Macdonald, who is a leading member of the UK SUP community and has chalked up a large amount of SUP first descents worldwide.

This section of the river tees is a favourite wth paddlers from all round England especially the team P.N.E paddlers (Ewan Nevill, Patrick Nevill and Chris Macdonald) who regularly use this as a training ground when there has been abit of rain to bring the levels up.
