|Route outline (key)|
The B6001 began at the junction of the A52 (present A6005) and Lodge Lane. Here, the B6001 ran northwards up Lodge Lane and through Spondon, running along Lodge Lane, Sitwell Street, Moor Street and Dale Road.
The majority of the B6001 became the A6096 between sometime around 1971.
Despite this, a map indicates that around 1976 a short stub of B6001 survived, running from the old A52 through Spondon (the A6005) to the new A52, which by then was on its present alignment - the Borrowash Bypass. This is however a mapping error - the B6001 never joined the A52 Borrowash Bypass from the south at Lodge Lane.
