Greetham is a village in Rutland, 6 miles from Oakham.

It is close to the Great North Road, on the line of the famous Roman road known as Ermine Street.

St. Mary's Church is mediaeval, but has fragments of Anglo-Saxon and Roman stonework built into the walls.

On the corner of Main Street and Great Lane is a most striking building. It was a stonemason's workshop, and has been decorated with fragments of tracery and other decoration from churches under restoration.

There is a well, sometimes called a holy well, built into a wall along the main street.

Near the church is the site of a mediaeval manor house.
