B6107 Holmfirth - Marsden
Moor Lane, Meltham

The B6107 is a largely rural B-road in west Yorkshire, skirting the northern edge of the Peak District National Park.

The road begins on the A6024 to the north of Holmfirth town centre and heads north into the unusually named village of Netherthong. The road narrows before reaching the village centre then widens again just before a sharp left-hand bend by the church.

The road heads west and soon reaches open country. It climbs up into the hills and reaches a crossroads near its summit, after which it goes through the small village of Wilshaw before passing a golf course to reach a crossroads, where the road has to give way.

The direct route into Meltham is straight ahead. However, this road is very steep and the B6107 has never gone that way. Instead it has to TOTSO right to descend slightly more sedately. The road bends sharply left then right as it reaches the other end of the direct route. It then crosses a stream before climbing up the other side into the centre of Meltham. In fact, the town centre is on a ridge between two steep valleys and so the road descends again after meeting the B6108 before climbing once more through the suburbs.

After returning to the moors the road goes through Holt Head where it meets the B6109. It then bears westwards to run along the southern edge of the Colne Valley. The valley is steep but the road takes its time descending. However, the further the road goes the steeper the gradient, especially actually inside the village of Marsden. The road ends to the east of the village centre on the A62.
