|Route outline (key)|
The B6059 is a largely urban B-road in south Yorkshire.
It starts at a triangular junction on the A618 at Wales Bar and heads east, quickly going over the M1 to enter the unusually named village of Wales. The main road through the village is called Wales Road; this leads to a bridge over the Sheffield to Retford railway line by the station which is called Kiveton Bridge, perhaps to reduce misunderstanding.
Wales moves seamlessly into the village of Kiveton Park. The B6059 heads east along Station Road before entering the park itself. The road runs between a quarry and a level crossing over the same railway line before turning north. It crosses some fields to reach South Anston.
Originally the B6059 ended at a T-junction by the church, where it met the A57. The T-junction is still there but the A57 now bypasses the village. As such the B6059 has been extended in both directions to reach the current line of the A57. The road to the left is quite short and soon reaches the A-road at a triangular junction. The road to the right is longer. It TOTSOs left at a T-junction immediately before meeting the B6060. Another church is passed before the road enters open country, eventually ending at a T-junction on the A57.
