|Route outline (key)|
The B6187 is a short B-road in the Broughton area of Salford.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A576 Great Cheetham Street. The road to the south is the A5066 Great Clowes Street and the B6187 takes that street name heading north. It is largely residential: to begin with large houses are set back from the road but after the road bends to the right it becomes lined with ordinary terraces.
Eventually the road bends to the right and runs along Knoll Street to end at traffic lights on the A56 Bury New Road. However, the original route continued north instead, along the remainder of Great Clowes Street to meet the A56 further north. The northern end of Great Clowes Street was closed off owing to a landslip in the late 1920s and is now only accessible on foot, hence the detour.
