From the edge of Stockport, you head out over the Cheshire Plain to Davenham, crossing the Weaver to Whitegate and Beeston. You cross the Dee at Farndon to enter Wales at Holt before returning to England through Malpas and Whitchurch to Market Drayton.
Return to Stockport through Shavington Park to Tattenhall, then skirt Nantwich and Middlewich.
The controls at Holt and Tattenham aren't available outside early-till-late shop hours so choose your start time accordingly, or use the eBrevet app or submit your GPX track for validation.
