in North East · Yorkshire · other sections on Greta (Tees)


Good continuous grade 3 run that ends with 100m of grade 4 just above the confluence with the Tees. The final stretch (including Rokesby falls) is difficult to inspect/portage, so be prepared to read and run.

Water Levels

Rokesby Falls needs >0.55m on the EA Rutherford gauge, but the run is still paddleable at lower levels.

Getting There

Putin W1°56'51" N54°30'17"
Takeout W1°50'6" N54°31'35"

Putin at the bridge in Rutherford. Takeout after the confluence with the Tees: the first available takeout is river left just above Whorlton Lido (clamber up the steep bank), or continue on the Tees down to Winston Bridge as it will be at a fun level if the Greta is running.
