B6136 Glasshoughton - Knottingley
Ferrybridge Hill

The B6136 is a largely urban B-road in central Yorkshire.

The road starts at a roundabout on the A656 in the Castleford suburb of Glasshoughton snf heads east along the southern edge of town. Eventually the cooling towers of Ferrybridge Power Station come into view and soon the road enters open country and appears to be heading directly towards the power station.

The road soon goes under the A1(M) immediately to the north of Holmfield Interchange (its junction with the M62). It then skirts the southern edge of the power station complex (the road's original route has been taken over by the power station grounds) before going under a railway line. The next road to the right forms the on/offslips for the northbound A162 (former A1) - although originally it was the A1; the old bridge over the River Aire is just to the left.

From this point on the road was originally numbered B1221, although it soon became part of the B6136. It goes under the A162 to pass through Ferrybridge itself. The next road to the right is the southbound A162 offslip and the one after is the onslip - both these roads start out essentially as ordinary residential roads.

The road passes seamlessly into Knottingley, where it ends at traffic lights on the A645.
