|Route outline (key)|
The B608x routes are all to the north-east of Sheffield City Centre or leading along routes in that direction, although the B6087 is on the edge of the urban area.
The B6087 starts on the A61 Halifax Road, where gaps in the central reservation allow all movements, and heads northeast along Chaucer Road. However, it originally started slightly further south and ran along Doe Royd Lane and Wordsworth Avenue to reach Chaucer Road.
The road bends right onto Yew Lane, a fast road (it even has a 40 limit) with service roads on either side. Presently the speed limit drops to 30 mph as we reach Ecclesfield. The road bends sharply left down Stocks Hill and TOTSOs right at the bottom onto Church Street
Originally the B6087 continued along the full length of Church Street to end on the A6178 (former A61) at the junction with Chapeltown Road and The Common. Although this is still fully part of the B6087 it is now technically a spur. The road has been recently extended so the mainline now TOTSOs right onto Mill Road to cross the A6135 at traffic lights, after which it then continues north along the semi-rural Nether Lane and goes under the Sheffield to Barnsley railway line. After crossing a roundabout the road ends at traffic lights on the A629 on the southern edge of Chapeltown.
