A649 Hipperholme – Heckmondwike

The A649 is an urban A-road in industrial Yorkshire. It's secondary all the way for its brief existence.

The A644 and A58 cross about three miles east of Halifax at the Hipperholme Crossroads. There's a church on the corner and the A649 turns south off the A58 at the other end of that and continues in a roughly easterly direction. It is S2 all the way and begins as a 30 mph limit road as it makes its way downhill to Bailiff Bridge, where it meets the A641 at a crossroads. It then climbs up a steep hill where we become a NSL road for about 2/3 of a mile, the only bit of the road where we are passing fields on both sides instead of houses and such-like.

On Hartshead Moor we become a 40 mph limit road, and then almost immediately become a 30 mph limit road again, which we keep until the end, just after passing over the M62; this section includes a multiplex with the A643 where we're the dominant number. We make our way slowly downhill again for about another two and a bit miles, until we cross the A62. 200 yards after that, the A649 ends at a T-junction with the A638 on the edge of Heckmondwike.
