River Greta, our lunch stop. The River Doe rises near Chapel le Dale and is joined by the River Twiss in Ingleton to become the River Greta. This then joins the River Lune between Wrayton and Arkholme.

The well-known River Greta which passes through Keswick starts life as River Glenderamackin and is labelled as River Greta, Cumbria on OS maps.
