B6011 Hucknall - Sherwood Lodge

The B6011 is a short link road to the north of the Nottinghamshire town of Hucknall.

The road starts on a large roundabout with the A611 Hucknall bypass and heads southeast into town. This first bit was originally the A611 itself before the bypass was built in the 1990s. Another roundabout is reached quickly, where the old A611 leaves us, and we turn left. We skirt the very northern edge of Hucknall here, before crossing over the Robin Hood railway line at a level crossing to meet another roundabout, on a road which serves the north and eastern part of Hucknall. We turn slightly to the left and enter the pretty village of Linby. The road through Linby has an open stream running alongside the road, giving it a quite open feeling; however, this stream often breaks its banks during wet weather. On leaving the village, we climb a hill and away from the stream.

Papplewick

Shortly we reach our second village, Papplewick. Built on a crossroads with the B683, the houses line all four arms of the junction, giving the village a "cross" shape when viewed from the air, although the two B683 arms are not completely opposite each other. Once through the village, we are out in open countryside for the remainder of the journey. We climb a hill up to some woods, then drop down to journey's end at a large T-junction with the A60. This junction can have serious queueing at peak times, as the busy A60 takes priority here.
