B523 Londonderry - Drumahoe
Church Brae

The B523 is a short urban road in the eastern suburbs of Derry. Owing to the road's short length it is not known when it gained its number. The B523 number does not apparently appear on any signs.

The road starts at traffic lights at the A2/A6 junction on the East Bank and heads south along Clooney Terrace, which is the original line of the A2. After crossing another set of lights the road TOTSOs left into the one-way Chapel Road and climbs steeply to a mini-roundabout. Traffic heading the other way theoretically descends the even steeper Fountain Hill to return to the ex-A2.

We now continue east along Irish Street and continue to climb; there's a short gap before the road becomes residential again. The road then levels out and continues to a mini-roundabout; an unclassified road heads west to reach the A6 and A514. We continue along an undulating road through the suburbs, crossing a double mini-roundabout. We then descend Church Brae past a church and graveyard before a T-junction is reached. The B523 TOTSOs left and heads north along Ardmore Road to journey's end at a T-junction back on the A6 just west of its bridge over the River Faughan.
