Route outline (key)
A6065 North Muskham - Balderton
This article is about the former A6065 in Newark along the former route of the A1.
For the original A6065 in Accrington, see A6065 (Accrington)

The A6065 was the number given to the old route of the A1 through Newark-on-Trent when that road was moved onto the eastern bypass in 1964.

The road left the rerouted A1 in North Muskham. It crossed the East Coast Main Line almost immediately before running into South Muskham where it met the A616. After crossing the northern branch of the River Trent the road followed a causeway across the flood plain, meeting the A617 on the edge of town. The road then went over a level crossing by Newark Castle station and continued towards the actual castle, crossing the southern branch of the Trent underneath it. The A46 (now B6166) was met on the far side of the river.

The B6326 (former A6065) Great North Road

After a short multiplex west along the A46 along Castle Gate the A6065 regained its number by turning left into Lombard Street. It skirted the town centre before leaving along London Road, an appropriate street name for the former A1. The road continued on to Balderton, now part of the same urban area and rejoined the A1 on the far side of the village. Maps suggest that the A6065 then continued on a further section of bypassed former A1 for about another mile, passing Fernwood and ending where the A1 rejoined its original route just north of the Shire Bridge.

The A6065 was renumbered as there was no need for a Class I route through the town centre following the opening of the northern bypass in 1990. The A616 now forms the road between South Muskham and the A46 bypass; the ex-A6065 north of here is the B6325 and to the south, the B6326.
