The river Greta is one of the river Tees' main tributaries. Famously known for God Bridge, a natural bridge formed from rock. The greta also has a section of the river that flows underground. Starting at the Pennines, the Greta flows downstream where Sleightholme Beck joins it, then eventually to Bowes, then Greta Bridge and finishes its journey just downstream of Barnard Castle.

This River is a superb river full of wild brown trout, some grayling are in the lower reaches but only in small numbers. Records from the EA and the Tees Rivers Trust have identified very good numbers of salmon and sea trout.
