A1 print inspired by the River Tees, its name, history and industrial heritage. Designed by We Built the World and individually screen printed.


The name of the River Tees is possibly of Brittonic origin. The element tēs, meaning "warmth" with connotations of "boiling, excitement" (Welsh tes), may underlie the name; a fortunate coincidence given its future, where the name Steel River was adopted due to the industry and engineering along its banks.
