B6062 New Smithy – Bridgemont

The B6062 is a short B-road running parallel to the A6 to the north of Buxton.

It starts in New Smithy, where the A624 TOTSOs right to cross the Hope Valley Line and climb into the hills. The B6062 continues ahead parallel to the railway line and soon enters Chinley, bending sharply left in the centre of the village. Originally the B6062 ended here on an unclassified road but was extended to its current length by 1932.

Shortly afterwards the road bends to the right and quickly enters open country once more, running along the side of a narrow valley. Presently the road bends sharply right to go under the railway line at a low bridge before going under it again soon afterwards and heading south into the village of Buxworth (or is it Bugsworth?). The road bends sharply to the right and after about half a mile is running northwards, adjacent to (but far below) the railway line.

After turning westwards once again the road crosses the River Goyt and the Peak Forest Canal before bending sharply left. For this final section it is squeezed in between the canal and the Stockport to Buxton railway line, before it ends at a T-junction on the A6. Because of the sharpness of the junction traffic may only turn left (the corresponding turn left off the A6 is not prohibited) and therefore traffic wanting the other direction must U-turn at the next roundabout.
