|Route outline (key)|
The B6061 was part of the direct route from Buxton to Castleton (avoiding Chapel-en-le-Frith).
It started on the A623 in Sparrowpit (where the road bends sharply to the right) and headed vaguely northeastwards. It climbed gradually through the hamlet of Perryfoot before meeting the west end of Winnats Pass. It ended just round the corner on the A625.
The A625 and B6061 continued to meet here even after the road past Mam Tor was abandoned in 1979, with the two roads simply running end-on into each other. Both roads were declassified at the very end of the 20th century, meaning the only classified road into Castleton, the A6187, is now from the east.
