Low Force Waterfalls


Low Force is series of waterfalls on the River Tees in Upper Teesdale, which has a drop of 5.5m. The Wynch Bridge, built in 1830, is located by Low Force. Low Force is within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Low Force is about a mile and a half down stream of High Force.

Low Force is an 18-foot (5.5m) high set of falls in the Tees Valley, England. Further upstream is the High Force waterfall. 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 a standup paddleboard (SUP) by international SUP athlete Anthony Ing.
