B6081 Sheffield - Rotherham
This article is about the original B6081 to the northeast of Sheffield city centre.

The A6109 (former B6081) alongside the River Don

The B608x routes are all to the north-east of Sheffield city xentre or leading along routes in that direction, although the original B6081 no longer exists.

The road started on the A57 Attercliffe Road on the edge of Sheffield City Centre and headed northeast along Savile Street and Brightside Lane to reach the B6084 Hawke Street. This was the original 1922 northern end of the road but it was soon extended north via Meadow Hall and Masbrough to enter Rotherham along Masbrough Street. It ended on the A632 College Road.

The extended route was obviously important, as it was quickly upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A6109. It remains this number, although Masbrough has now been bypassed and so the eastern end of the B6081 is now unclassified. Various pieces of the ex-B6081 have also been upgraded in recent years, although it seems to be unchanged in the vicinity of Meadow Hall.
