Yarm is a small town in North Yorkshire, England. It grew up at the tidal limit of the River Tees.
Between 1974 and 1996 it was part of a new county, Cleveland, along with neighbouring Stockton-on-Tees. When that was abolished, Stockton was re-assigned to County Durham; but it still governs Yarm even though they're in separate counties.
