A6056 Link in Bolton
Orlando Road bridge carried the former A6056 over the railway

The A6056 was a short road round the south side of Bolton town centre. It started on the A6055 Derby Street then went east along Crook Street, soon crossing the A579 Great Moor Street. On meeting the A6057 Trinity Street by Holy Trinity Church the road turned right to head south along either Thynne Street or Moncrieffe Street - the 1922 Road Lists claim the former but most maps seem to suggest that the road followed the latter. The road then headed east again on Orlando Street, ending on the A666 Manchester Road.

The building of the inner ring road has made following the route of the A6056 extremely difficult as half of Crook Street has been destroyed in the process. However, Moor Lane and Trinity Street do shadow this route. The remainder of the route is still in existence, albeit of little use to through traffic.
