The B6147 is a short urban link road on the edge of the Bradford urban area.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A647 at Bank Top and heads south, passing a turning for the B6380 immediately.
We continue south along the residential Cooper Lane. Eventually a stream is crossed, marking the edge of the village of Shelf (and also the boundary of the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale). The B6147 continues to the end of the road. It crosses a mini-roundabout before ending at a T-junction on the A6036.
