Leaving Grindleford

In the original 1922 road numbering, A6010 was allocated to Stony Middleton - Eyam - Grindleford Bridge, placing it in Derbyshire's Peak District.

The road started on the A623 to the west of the village now normally spelt Stoney Middleton at the junction of Middleton Dale and Eyam Dale. It headed north up the latter into Eyam, where it bore right in the main square to pass the Townend Well and leave town along New Road. It ran apparently along the edge of a cliff before the terrain opened out. It soon bent sharply left, with the valley of the River Derwent to the right. The road descended gently into the valley, ending at a T-junction on the A622 before reaching the bottom.

The road was downgraded in the 1960s at the same time as the A622 (which is now the B6001) and is now part of the B6521. However, the majority of the road is narrow and it would seem unlikely to modern drivers that it ever held a Class I number.
