B6164 Knaresborough - Wetherby
Kirk Deighton

The B6164 is a medium-length B-road in central Yorkshire.

The road starts at traffic lights on the A59 to the east of Knaresborough town centre and heads southeast along Wetherby Road, showing its final destination from the beginning. The road crosses the River Nidd on a narrow bridge with flow controlled by traffic lights before going through a retail park and then crossing the A658 Knaresborough bypass at a roundabout.

Now in open country, the road continues southeast following the river (although the road is nowhere near as winding). After a couple of miles we go through Little Ribston, where the river turns away and the road continues to the south through North Deighton and Kirk Deighton. The road then reaches the northern edge of Wetherby and a T-junction.

Originally the B6164 ended here on the A1. However, when that road was rerouted onto a bypass in the 1960s the B6164 took over the old route. The spur to the left once met the A1 at a LILO but now the road has been upgraded further to motorway status we meet the A168 at a roundabout, whilst ahead is the B1224 which heads over to A1(M) junction 46. Returning to the T-junction, the mainline of the B6164 turns right and heads south into the centre of Wetherby. After running along most of the High Street it ends at a mini-roundabout on the A661, which continues along the pre-bypass A1, just to the north of the bridge over the River Wharfe.
