|Route outline (key)|
The A163 is a fairly short rural A-road in central Yorkshire.
Barlby - Holme-on-Spalding-Moor
The road starts by turning off the A19 to the north of Barlby, at the northern end of the Selby bypass. The road heads east across flat land and passes through North Duffield before crossing the River Derwent at Bubwith.
On the far side of Bubwith the B1228 crosses us, after which we continue across more flat land to Holme-on-Spalding-Moor. The A163 runs through the linear village to reach a mini-roundabout at the far end of the High Street. The road ends here on the A614.
This section has since been assimilated into the monstrously long A614, truncating the A163 to its current stub.
