B6068 Parkhead – Meadow Head
This article is about the present B6068 to the south of Sheffield.
For the original B6068, a short section of London Road, closer to the centre of Sheffield, see B6068 (London Road, Sheffield)

Abbey Lane, Sheffield

The B6068 is a short urban B-road on the southern side of Sheffield. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s, making it an early example of a recycled number.

We begin in the suburb of Parkhead by forking left off the A625 and heading onto Abbey Lane, a street name we keep for the entire length of the B6068. To begin with, the road runs through a 30 zone but 40 is the normal speed limit.

On meeting the B6375 we turn left and onto a wider road and head downhill through some woods and to a crossroads with the A621. We head across and over a railway bridge before the road widens again. The limit now drops to 30 before we reach a roundabout junction with an unclassified road; this is the signposted route to everywhere except Sheffield city centre so most traffic turns right here. We head straight on and continue along a wide road, passing Beachief cemetery and some big houses before the road narrows down past the start of the Woodseats shops and terminates on the A61.
