One of the oldest and largest breeds of 'longwool' sheep, developed in the Tees Valley area of the Northern Pennines. Both sexes are polled (so have no horns, their colour varying from off-white to grey-blue with dark brown or black markings around the nose, ears and eyes. They have a characteristic forelock of wool falling over their face.

Teeswater sheep are listed as 'endanered' by The Rare Breed Survival Trust - so your support for them is needed. For more information contact the breed society at: Wodencroft, Cotherstone, Barnard Castle, Co. Durham, DL12 9UQ. See 'Rare Breed Survival Trust'
