The B6098 is a short B-road across Yorkshire's Dearne Valley.
The road starts at a roundabout on the A6023 on the eastern edge of Wath upon Dearne and heads north along Bolton Road. After going under the Sheffield to Wakefield railway line twice it crosses the two channels of the River Dearne to reach Bolton upon Dearne.
The road runs north through the village, climbing out of the valley, before going under the railway line again at a narrow bridge. This takes the road into Goldthorpe, where it zigzags along the High Street before crossing a bridge over an old railway cutting, now containing a footpath. The road then reaches traffic lights on Doncaster Road.
Originally the B6098 ended here, on the original line of the A635. That road now bypasses Goldthorpe, so the road TOTSOs left and runs along a short section of pre-bypass A635, before a TOTSO right at the next set of traffic lights leads to a short link road to a roundabout on the current route of the A635. The B6098 ends here.
