|Route outline (key)|
The B6052 is a fairly short B-road in eastern Derbyshire.
The road starts on the northern edge of Chesterfield. According to signs it begins at a roundabout on the A61 at Whittington - but this does mean that the first hundred or so feet is a useless multiplex with the B6057; this road takes the first left off the B6052 but also crosses the A61 to continue south into the town centre.
The B6052 heads north and quickly goes under the Midland Main Line and over the River Whitting into Old Whittington and then New Whittington. Eventually the road enters open country and heads northeast up Springwell Hill before descending into the village of Eckington. There is a signalised T-junction on the western side of the village, where the road meets the B6056 and TOTSOs right. The road then runs east along the High Street. Originally it then zigzagged into Station Road to end on the A616 but the B6052 has since been rerouted past the church to end further north on the same A-road, which has been numbered A6135 since the 1980s.
