The B6478 approaching Newton.
The B6478 runs through the heart of the Forest of Bowland on the boundary of Lancashire and Yorkshire.
It starts at the south end of the Clitheroe Bypass and goes through the town replacing said A671 to the northern end of the bypass. Then after passing under a low railway bridge(11'6") and over the River Ribble at Brungerley Bridge the B6478 heads for Waddington and then slowly climbs through the Ribble Valley District. A height of 352m is reached on Newton Moors before the B6478 descends to Newton after crossing the River Hodder.
The river is followed to Slaidburn and crossed again. Stephen Moor is then crossed before descending to the hamlet of Tosside and the North Yorkshire border. Wigglesworth is the next village before once again crossing the River Ribble this time at Cow Bridge before Long Preston Beck and Rail Station on the Leeds to Heysham line.
The end is on the A65 also at Long Preston.
