Greatham Creek is a tidal channel with extensive areas of saltings. It also has
adjacent saline lagoons to the north and south which are always worth a look during
the summer for breeding Common Terns and spring and autumn for waders. An additional
attraction here is the Common and Grey Seals that bask and rest on the banks of
the Creek and are easily visible from the main A178 Tees Road.
Access to Greatham Creek is from the Teesmouth National Nature Reserve car park
off the A178 on the south side of the road bridge. Walk up to the bridge to view
both sides of the Creek.
