Each October Open Weekend Tees Cottage holds its Autumn Gala Weekend. In addition to the usual attractions, we invite stationary engines, traction engines, vintage vehicles and craft demonstrations to the site.

Tees Cottage has Lancashire Boilers from 1902, a 1904 steam powered Beam Engine and a 1914 Gas engine, all in operation and still pumping water from the River Tees (although no longer supplying the town's water!)

There is also have a Blacksmith's Shop, where demonstrations are usually given, and a Miniature Railway, with rides provided by Cleveland Association of Model Engineers for a small additional charge.

Refreshments are available in the Tea Room or you can bring a picnic to enjoy in our grounds.
