Route

The A6096 (former B6001) towards Spondon

The B6001 linked Derby (from what was at the time the A52) to the A609 and A6007 in Ilkeston.

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.

After leaving Spondon the road ran up to Dale Abbey, then onto Ilkeston through Kirk Hallam. It ended at the junction of the A6007 and A609 at White Lion Square in Ilkeston.

History

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.
