|Route outline (key)|
The A6023 is a short urban A-road in south Yorkshire.
It starts at a roundabout on the A633 on the edge of Wath upon Dearne, although it originally started in the centre of town by running along the High Street. It heads east to Mexborough which is also now bypassed. Here is a short section of dual carriageway - the only section on the A6023.
After leaving Mexborough behind, the Don Navigation, the River Don itself and then a railway line are crossed in quick succession. The railway line used to be crossed by a level crossing which is still in existence just to the east but this has now been bypassed - and the old bridge over the Don was bypassed at the same time. After a roundabout, the A6023 rejoins its original route and follows the railway line into Conisbrough. It skirts the castle before ending on the A630.
