Bertie Greatheed contributed to the Florence Miscellany (1785), the anthology that introduced Della Cruscan poetry. In 1788 his tragedy, The Regent, was produced at Drury Lane, though its success was impeded by political controversy. Greatheed lived in retirement on his estate, Guy's Cliff, near Warwick, where Mrs. Siddons was a frequent visitor. Among the sights at Guy's Cliff was a painting of Spenser's Cave of Despair painted by Bertie Greatheed junior.
