The B685 was a short link road on the eastern edge of Nottingham city centre.
It started on the A612 Southwell Road. It headed south along Manvers Street to the railway line before bending left onto Sneinton Hermitage. It ended on the B686 which came in from the right along Meadow Lane and continued ahead along Colwick Road.
The B685 number became redundant in the 1990s. Manvers Street is now part of the A612 mainline whilst Sneinton Hermitage is unclassified.
