Route outline (key)
B6015 Matlock - Chesterfield
The A632 (former B6015) heading out of Kelstedge

The B6015 was the original number of the direct road between Matlock and Chesterfield.

It started on the B6014 in the centre of Matlock. It originally went up Steep Turnpike but later gaineda a spur along the slightly gentler gradient of Lime Tree Road, thus meeting the B6014 slightly further east in Matlock Green.

The road crossed the moors before crossing the steep valley of the River Amber, meeting the B6036 in Kelstedge. Back up on the moors the B5057 was met before our road bore to the right towards Chesterfield. In Walton it turned sharply left to run north along Walton Road and end on the A619 Chatsworth Road to the west of the town centre.

The B6015 survived until the 1970s but was then upgraded to Class I status. It became a western extension of the A632, which it remains.
