Pennine Way Part 3 - Marsden to Littleborough

Public Transport based walk with John Ireland.

Start British Summer Time off with the 3rd part of my long-running aim to do the whole Pennine Way.

This section from Marsden to Littleborough takes in Standedge, crosses the M62 and leads up to Blackstone Edge before descending down a Roman Road to Littleborough, possibly seeing some trampolining goats on the way down for a surreal touch near the end.
