|Route outline (key)|
The B6043 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Link at Whitwell.
The road connects the A619 with itself either side of Whitwell, with the A619 bypassing the village and the B6043 going through the middle. Originally, however, it was the other way round but the two numbers were swapped in 1935, thus moving the A-road onto the bypass.
