The A6066 turning off the A671
The A6066 cuts off the corner between the A671 and A681, allowing traffic to avoid the centre of Bacup.
Starting at a sharply angled junction on the A671 the road heads west along New Line, a relatively straight road heading westwards. The road is residential, although the terraces to begin with soon give way to larger houses and the occasional industrial building, although terraces do come back from time to time. Open fields are sometimes visible to the left. Presently we enter the suburb of Stubbylee Park, where we bend to the left and descend to cross a stream, ending just beyond at a T-junction on the A681.
