|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at a roundabout on the A49 immediately west of that road's crossing of the West Coast Main Line. We head north and soon cross the line ourselves before winding alongside the River Douglas through an eastern suburb of Standish. It's not long before we enter open country and we climb away from the river and continue across the fields.
