|Route outline (key)|
The B6018 is a largely urban B-road in western Nottinghamshire.
Our journey begins in the centre of Selston village, at a simple T-junction with the B600 (former A613). We wind through the outskirts of the village on Mansfield Road, before hitting open countryside and an overbridge with the M1. On our right we have the remains of old mining activity in the near distance, before we pass through existing industry at the old Bentick Mine. The bridge we go under here used to carry the railway which served the mines, but now carries nothing.
Shortly we meet up with the B6019 on our left, and the road now enters the village of Kirkby in Ashfield. We drive along Church Street and Church Hill; the church in question is on the right - the spired parish church of St Wilfred. After a while we cross over a mini-roundabout (with the B6020 on our right) and the road changes its name to Sutton Road. The remainder of our route is on a fairly straight route through housing estates; it ends on the A38 at a signalised crossroads. The unclassified road straight on takes us to Sutton in Ashfield; we have Ashfields Fire Station on our right, which serves most of the district.
