The B560 is a largely rural B-road to the west of Bedford.
It starts at a mini-roundabout on the B531 in Kempston and heads west along the High Street. This section of road was the A5134 until the A428 Bedford western bypass (now the A6) was built in 2009 and some signs still show that number. At the other end of the High Street the B560 TOTSOs right to reach a roundabout on the bypass.
The B560 then continues to Kempston Church End where it TOTSOs left. This is the original eastern end of the road; the now-unclassified former A5134 continues ahead. The B560 zigzags through the Bedfordshire countryside and TOTSOs right at Kempston West End, along a road signed as unsuitable for HGVs.
After crossing a ridge the B560 ends at a T-junction on the A422 Stagsden bypass. It originally continued into the centre of the village along a road now blocked; a farm track has been built to continue this right-of-way which passes under the A422 a little under 200 metres to the south-west.
An amended OpenStreetMap trace for this route awaits uploading to the SABRE Wiki.
