B6101 Marple - New Mills
Marple

The B6101 is a short B-road on the western side of the Peak District.

The road starts at traffic lights on the A626 Stockport Road, where that road TOTSOs left, and heads east along Stockport Road through the centre of Marple. After crossing Marple Locks – the longest flight of narrow locks in the UK – the B6101 meets the B6102 and then heads south out of town. It passes through an attractive hillside area with the River Goyt below and the Upper Peak Forest Canal above.

We then reach the village of Strines, then enter Cheshire East Borough for a short distance, then on crossing the Goyt go into Derbyshire over the Hope Valley Line at Hague Bar. Next is New Mills with its 20mph limit. After turning right at a mini-roundabout the B6101 crosses the River Goyt again to end at a traffic-light-controlled junction with the A6015. Turn left for Hayfield; right for the A6 and Buxton.
