In addition, TCPS is open every Wednesday for maintenance and, although the engines will not normally be working, we are happy to provide a site tour for a small group of people, for a small donation. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please contact our Chairman, Dave Smart, on 07702 403142 in order to schedule your visit.

Autumn Gala Weekend

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

Group Visits

If you are planning to bring a large group to one of our Open Days, please let us know. Write to the address given on the Contact Information for Tees Cottage page. If you wish, we may be able to organise for you to have a guided tour of the site.

Groups can also arrange for a static opening of the site at times when we are not normally open. Tees Cottage is suitable for School Visits, as it can make a significant contribution to the studies required in the modern school curriculum. This particularly applies to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), social issues, public health and Victorian studies.   See our education pages for more details.
