|Route outline (key)|
The B6145 runs over the hills to the west of Bradford.
It originally started on the A647 by the town hall in Bradford City Centre. However, this easternmost section has now been turned into a public square and so the B6145 has been truncated by a short distance to start at traffic lights on the A6181 inner ring road. It heads west along Thornton Road.
The road takes some distance to leave the Bradford urban area. It eventually crosses the A6177 outer ring road at traffic lights. After passing Four Lane Ends fields become visible on the left but the road never becomes completely rural. There is about another mile of suburbs then a short break in the houses before the road enters Thornton.
The road continues west with the church spire visible dead ahead. After passing the church the road skirts the village centre and passes the cemetery. The road then goes over a disused railway cutting before crossing a few fields to reach Keelham. The road ends here at a traffic-light-controlled crossroads where the other three directions are all A644.
Until very recently the B6145 continued ahead to reach the A629. However, the original A644/A629 junction at Denham Clough now only provides access onto the southbound A644, so that road has taken over the westernmost section of the B6145 to allow it to reach the A629.
