|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at a triangular junction adjacent to the Robin Hood Inn, on the edge of the Chatsworth Estate, and heads east, initially parallel to the A619 before turning away and climbing onto the moors. After nearly a mile of straight road the B6050 TOTSOs left and continues to climb before descending to cross the boundary of the Peak District National Park.
After reaching a summit, on Grange Hill, the road descends steeply into Overgreen and then becomes far more winding than before. It zigzags through the fields before reaching Upper Newbold and the B6051, which it crosses at a staggered crossroads. Upper Newbold is essentially a suburb of Chesterfield but the B6050 continues around the northern edge of town and remains rural for another couple of miles before reaching the Chesterfield suburb of Sheepbridge.
About a mile later the road reaches a roundabout, where it crosses the A61 Chesterfield throughpass. It then goes under two railway lines and over the River Rother and Chesterfield Canal to enter Brimington. The road bears right at a mini-roundabout to end on a one-way loop of the A619 in the centre of the village.
