Scenes of Cleveland, North East England
The Tees Barrage is on the River Tees, near Thornaby, between the towns of Stockton and Middlesbrough. The Tees Barrage is a barrage across the River Tees to control the flow of the river, preventing flooding and the effects of tidal change. The Tees Barrage complex consists of a river barrage, road bridge, footbridge, barge lock, fish pass and white water course for competition canoeing. The waters above the barrage are held at the level of an average high tide and are used for water sports such as canoeing, jet skiing, dragonboat racing and even incorporates a 1 km rowing course.

Barrage and Stockton-on-Tees flood defense scheme. The primary purpose
of the Tees Barrage project was to protect Stockton-on-Tees and
Middlesbrough from flooding while also generating renewable energy for
