The A6051 is a very short A-road in the Tame Valley. It runs parallel to the A670, the River Tame and the Huddersfield Narrow Canal for its entire length. Indeed, it is only the terrain in the area that renders such a road necessary at all. It is the type of road where to distinguish between A roads, B roads and Unclassified roads can be a bit of a nonsense!
The A669 and A670 diverge by Greenfield station. The A669 descends to the river and then up the other side of the valley towards Saddleworth Moor. The A670 on the other hand follows the valley albeit at some height. The A6051 provides a link between the two roads. It starts on the A669 adjacent to Frenches Bridge and heads north along the river, climbing to meet the A670, which it meets as a sharp east-facing junction, just on the border of Greenfield and Uppermill. There are no houses or buildings along the road, although it is worth noting the majority of one side of the road has clear marked car parking spaces put in place to provide parking for the nearby train station.
