The Teise is one of the Medway’s four main tributaries. The health of the River Teise is integral to key sites within its catchment, including Bedgebury Forest, Bewl Water, angling clubs and the largely agricultural landscape.
Many key partners have been active in engaging with and improving the health of the Teise catchment. The South East Rivers Trust’s work in the Teise so far has consisted of the removal of four concrete weirs, in addition to habitat work at these sites. This project naturalised the movement of water and sediment throughout the catchment and opened up several kilometres of river habitat to make it accessible to migrating fish.
