The B6150 is an urban road through the northwest suburbs of Chesterfield. The road came into existence with the construction of the suburbs in the 1980s; indeed, the central section of the road is wholly new-build.

The road starts at traffic lights in the Whittington area of town, confusingly on the B6050, and follows Racecourse Road round to the left to reach a mini-roundabout. To the left St John's Road is a shorter route back to the B6050 (but is one-way towards us), whilst we turn right. We follow the rest of St John's Road and cross another mini-roundabout before passing St John's Church. We then bear left through the centre of the suburb of Newbold to reach a further mini-roundabout on the B6051.

There's a multiplex to the right to traffic lights where the B6150 turns left to regain its number. We now follow the wide Loundsley Green Road through the suburb of the same name, although no houses actually front onto the B6150 on this stretch. The road verges are just wide enough to suggest that the road was planned to be dual but only one carriageway has so far been built. After crossing two roundabouts we reach a T-junction.

We rurn left then TOTSO right at the next mini-roundabout – proof of the fact the B6150 came late to this area – and continue south along Storrs Road, which is lined with perhaps the oldest buildings on the road. It's not long before we reach journey's end at a signalised T-junction on the A619.
