Before the building of South Gare, permanent dry land stopped at Tod Point, at the western end of Warrenby and there was only Coatham Sands and the mudflats of Bran Sands.The creation of South Gare extends this by a further 2.5 miles (4.0 km).Plans for the offshore wind farm include thirty 200 feet (61 m) windmills over 1 mile (1.6 km) offshore.AMEC Wind has plans to site 19 wind turbines inside Corus steelworks generating 47.5 MW of electricity.To the immediate south of the coastguard station is a short steel frame tower.This tower houses a radar antennae, an automatic fog detector and a vertical set of four sectored red and white leading lights for navigation purposes.The dunes on the eastern flank are protected by three slag banks close to the breakwater, known as the German Charlies that are partly exposed at low tide.The land is made from thousands of tons of basic slag from blast furnaces.
The area consists of tidal mudflats, scrub, grassland, sand dunes, rocks and freshwater and saltwater pools, and attracts a very wide range of birds.
Built on the reclaimed land of Bran Sands is the ore terminal, sinter plant, coke plant, and blast furnace of SSI's Teesside Steelworks.
The plant was mothballed in 2010, reopening in April 2012, only to be mothballed again on 28 September 2015, and finally closed on 12 October 2015. As well as those out for a stroll other activities indulged in include sea fishing from small boats and angling from the concrete breakwater, photography of wildlife and shipping etc., also birdwatching, Near the end of the breakwater, in the fenced compound, there is a tall steel framed mast, housing air speed measurement devices.

If you feel we have left something out please don't hesitate to let us know We even have a BC date for you (Caesar lands on British Shores) although the exact date is of course unverified...To construct South Gare a rail line was built from the Warrenby iron works to carry men and materials.
