Low Force is an 18-foot-high set of waterfalls on the River Tees, which marks the border of the North Riding of Yorkshire with County Durham.

Further upstream is the famous High Force waterfall.

Low Force is also the site of the Wynch Bridge, completed in 1830. It is suggested that only one person at a time should cross the bridge as it may be unstable.

The falls are within the 'North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and a European Geopark.
