Osberton

The B6079 is the road heading east out of Worksop to meet the A1. It was originally the western end of the A620 but it was downgraded following the construction of the A57 southern bypass.

The road starts on the B6040 (pre-bypass A57) at a roundabout on the eastern edge of town and heads east, soon going under the railway line from Sheffield to Lincoln. We continue across the fields, with the Chesterfield Canal and the River Ryton following a similar route to ours to the left.

We bear right at the gates of Osberton Hall and then skirt the grounds before rejoining the straight road at the far side. We run briefly alongside the canal (which is much more winding) before ending at a GSJ on the A1. The road ahead, into Ranby and Retford, is the A620.
