|Route outline (key)|
The A6015 is a short link between the A6 at Newtown and the A624 at Hayfield in west Derbyshire. The road is unchanged from its original 1922 route, except in Hayfield itself where it has been truncated slightly by the construction of the A624 throughpass.
The road begins at a traffic-signal-controlled junction on the A6 at Newtown, part of New Mills. It leaves the A6 at an acute angle and runs down Albion Road, soon crossing a railway line near New Mills Newtown station. It then crosses the Peak Forest Canal and a second railway line before running to the south of New Mills itself along Church Road, meeting the B6101 at traffic lights.
A viaduct is crossed over the River Goyt, followed by a third and final railway line. The road then continues east through Low Leighton before reaching open country. We then follow New Mills Road through Birch Vale before descending into Hayfield where we end at a T-junction on the A624
