Route

The B6007 is a short link road giving access to the recreational area of the town of Ilkeston, serving the County Cricket Club, Victoria Park and Baths.

It links the main route to Derby and Cotmanhay/Heanor, the A609 and A6007 respectively, avoiding the town centre to the west. The road is S2 throughout with a 30 limit.

History

The B6007 originally ran east of Ilkeston

All the above was unclassified in 1922.

The original route of the B6007 started on the A6007 Bath Street in the town centre and headed east along Station Road. It went through Cossall Marsh and Awsworth before running along Awsworth Lane into Kimberley, where it ended on the A610 Eastwood Road.

The road was later (probably in 1935) extended to the west (via a short multiplex along the A6007) along its current route bypassing Ilkeston. However, in 1971 the entire of the original section of the road was upgraded to Class I status, presumably becoming the A6096.

The construction of the current route of the A610 severed the original northern section of the B6007, so the A6096 was rerouted to meet it. Then in the late 1990s and 2000s the entire of the ex-B6007 was bypassed. As such, the A6096 has a similar route to the B6007 - but does not actually run along any of it, with the possible exception of a roundabout to the west of Cossall Marsh.
