B567 Link in Northampton
The A5123 (former B567) Upper Mounts

The B567 was a link road in Northampton town centre.

It started on the A428 Harlestone Road and headed east along Spencer Bridge Road, across the railway line and River Nene before continuing along Grafton Street and the Mounts to reach its original end on the A43 Abington Street.

In 1935 the B567 was extended further clockwise, along what was the B566, taking it along Victoria Promenade to reach the A43 again, making the B567 half a ring road.

This situation existed until pedestrianisation of the streets in the centre of Northampton forced traffic elsewhere and so the B567 was upgraded to Class I status to take the vehicles. Spencer Bridge Road and Grafton Street are now part of the A428; the rest is A5123.
