A6192 Long Duckmanton - Staveley

The A6192 links Markham Vale Business Park and junction 29A of the M1 (opened 20th June 2008) to the A619 to the north and the A632 to the south.

The road starts at a roundabout a mile or so to the west of Bolsover where it meets the A632 and B6418. It heads north through the Markham Vale Business Park along a road liberally scattered with roundabouts. The first provides access to nowhere in particular. At the second roundabout the old road which was upgraded to become the A6192 continues ahead towards a plant whilst we turn left to reach the M1. We meet the southbound sliproads for J29A at the first roundabout then cross over the motorway to meet the northbound offslip and a minor road to the village of Duckmanton. Turning right the road is briefly residential before we reach the northbound onslip at the next roundabout.

The road runs in a cutting below the M1 and goes under a bridge carrying the minor road to the plant mentioned above. We bear left under another bridge and then follow a winding course around the village of Poolsbrook and the Pools Brook Country Park, crossing a bridge between two ponds. We reach another roundabout in an industrial estate on the edge of Staveley. From here the obvious route to the A619 is the road ahead, which is partially residential; however, the A6192 actually turns left along the strange Staveley bypass, completed in mid-2009.

Looking down from the A619 overbridge

We head north, still running through the industrial estate, and soon run alongside a dismantled railway line, now a footpath. The A619 is then met but there is no access to it here as it crosses us on a bridge. The road now follows a lengthy anticlockwise loop, also going under the B6053, and over a bridge built for future restoration of the Chesterfield Canal. Presently we reach another roundabout, by which time we're pointing southwards. The original plan was for the A6192 to continue ahead and bypass Staveley completely and the roundabout has been future-proofed for that; however, the road ahead is currently unbuilt and so the A6192 turns left here and crosses a working section of the canal before climbing steeply to enter Staveley from the west. The road bears right on meeting the B6053 and ends just afterwards at a roundabout on the A619, by which time drivers who don't know the area should be disorientated.
