Recorders: Not active presently Last recorded 2018 established 2013 Walk Time:

This man-made promontory sticks out into the Tees Bay by around 2 miles and was created in the 1880’s from waste slag (a by-product of the booming iron and steel industry). It was built to protect the river mouth and the ships that entered it, in conjunction with the North Gare, a mile away across the river.

Over the decades, nature has taken its course and parts of the South Gare look quite scenic with rolling sand dunes and a few assorted trees and bushes and reed beds.

Unfortunately, there is no access restriction to the area, despite parts of it being a Special Protection Area
