The B6042 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Creswell Crags Road. It is a short link allowing quicker access from Worksop to Creswell.
The road starts on the A60 at Belph, on the edge of Welbeck Abbey. It heads vaguely westwards along a flat, straight road to reach a T-junction where it TOTSOs left. The road then passes a turning on the left for Creswell Crags; this was the original line of the road until the late 2000s when it was rerouted to avoid the actual crags; the old road has largely been turned into a footpath.
The road continues west, in cutting at one point, before rejoining its original route just before ending at a mini-roundabout on the A616 in Creswell village.
