Route

Manchester Road

The B6088 is a short B-road through the Yorkshire town of Stocksbridge.

It starts by the Underbank Reservoir on the A616 at the western end of the Stocksbridge bypass and then heads east along the pre-bypass A616 into town. Although the road is lined with houses (or shops) for most of its route it does seem to mark the boundary between the industrial area to the north and the residential area to the south.

Eventually the B6088 enters Deepcar, where it ends at traffic lights on the A6102.

History

The B6088 in 1923

Given that the above route was A616 before the Stocksbridge bypass was built, it is obvious that the original line of the B6088 was elsewhere.

In fact, the original western end of the B6088 is in the same place as its current eastern end. The A616 bore right to continue along Manchester Road in the direction of Sheffield whilst the B6088 headed north to cross the Little Don and go under the Woodhead railway line. It then followed Wortley Road and Soughley Lane before bearing right to go under another railway line. It ended on the A629 to the south of Wortley.

When the Stocksbridge bypass was built this took over the route of the B6088. The western section became part of the A6102 and the remainder was declassified.
