Route outline (key)
A21 Braddan - Cronk-ny-Mona

The A21 is a defunct route which forms part of the 'ring road' across the north of Douglas. It has been renumbered as part of the A6 to provide a single number for the route around the north, west and southern sides of the town, although a handful of signs for the A21 survive. The actual change appears to have happened between 2006 and 2010.

The route started on the A23 at Braddan and headed north east along Ballafletcher Road, dipping to cross the River Glass, and then following Johnny Watterson Lane. The A22 was crossed at a crossroads (now a mini roundabout) as the route climbed, kinking left then right at Cronk-y-berry before ending on the A18 at Cronk-ny-Mona. As recently as 1970, most of the route was rural, but now there are few fields left on either side of the road on the southern section, and past Cronk-y-berry the road is completely built up to the east.
