|Route outline (key)|
The B182 is a cross-country road in east County Londonderry. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout on the A42 on the eastern edge of Gulladuff. That road bends sharply here (there was a TOTSO before the roundabout was put in) and so our road takes on the easterly course the A-road has had since Maghera. After going over a hill there's a detour north to avoid a second but otherwise the road is more-or-less straight as it crosses the undulating fields.
Presently the road enters Bellaghy and reaches a T-junction on the A54. There's a multiplex left into the village centre to a mini-roundabout, where the B182 regains its number by turning right. We now head south along Castle Street and bear left to avoid Bellaghy Bawn, a fortified house which is the castle referred to.
We soon reenter open country and continue south across the fields and through a wood. It's not long before we reach journey's end at a T-junction on the A6.
