A tough start for this section rewards with more stunning Peak District views as you cross the moorland and hills toward Standedge.

Be prepared to cover most of this section's ascent within the first few miles up to Laddow Rocks. Much of the way will be open moorland tracks, though you'll balance the wild wide open with more manicured landscape as you follow access roads along several resevoirs before reaching Standedge.
