|Route outline (key)|
It started on the A57 at Rivelin Bridge and headed roughly northeastwards into Malin Bridge before going eastwards to end on the A629 (now A61) Penistone Road in Owlerton. According to the map on the righ the road did not follow the present Rivelin Valley Road in its entirety (despite that road's having been built in 1907) but diverted via Hagg Lane and Low Road to follow a route now impossible to drive along in full.
Owing to the road's importance it was soon upgraded to Class I status. In the mid-1920s it became the A6101, which it remains, although that road now follows the full length of Rivelin Valley Road, so Stannington Road has been taken over as an extension of the B6076.
