Water Witches are a type of witch, featured in the Wardstone Chronicles.
These Witches are far more animal than human and have mostly lost the power of speech.
They cannot use mirrors, either to communicate or to spy on others. One name commonly given to water witches is Greenteeth, because of the green slime that sometimes forms on their lips and teeths.
They hook their victims and then drag them into the water.
They dwell in marshes, riuvers, canals and ditches, and unlike human witches have the ability to cross running water.
Many water witches dwell near the Caster Mill - belonging to the Spook, Bill Akwright.
- They are primarily featured in the Spook's Mistake.
