The B6205 is a cross-town road transecting across the top of Bolton town centre.
The road starts off at a signalised crossroads with the A676, where the A676 TOTSOs and the B6206 also starts. The single carriageway road heads westwards for a short distance along Bow Street to a signalised T-junction. In 1922 this was all there was of the B6205 - it ended here on the A666 - but more recent road improvements in Bolton have extended the road considerably.
The road turns northwards here and, following a short climb, the road reaches another signalised crossroads, where a rarity amongst roads occurs - a cannon! The road turns left, whilst the B6206 comes in from the east and turns northwards. From here, the road runs in a straight line westwards along the original line of the A673. After a short distance, the road passes through a signalised junction where the B6204 heads off in a southerly direction. The last few hundred metres sees the road become one-way in an easterly direction with a contraflow bus lane in operation in the westbound direction. The western end sees the B6205 end at a large signalised crossroads where the other three directions are numbered A673.
