River Glenderamackin from Guardhouse bridge
|- location||Mungrisdale Common|
The river runs east, then north before sharply turning south at the village of Mungrisdale, skirting almost all around the bottom of Souther Fell.
Latterly, the river turns west to the north of Hutton Moor End and the Trout Beck joins it at Wolt Bridge to the south of Lowside. Not too far away it is soon swelled again by the waters of Mosedale Beck next to Dobson's Bridge. The Glenderamackin continues past Threlkeld, at which point it conjoins with St. John's Beck to form the River Greta.
The 'glendera' element is also present in the name of Glenderaterra Beck, which joins the River Greta shortly after its source.
