The B6212 is a short link road to the west of Bury town centre.
The road starts on the B6213 Tottington Road and heads south along Fenton Street, a residential road which looks pretty much identical to the residential roads around it, with nothing particular marking it out as having Class II status. Indeed, after a mini-roundabout one block south the road enters a traffic-calmed 20 zone.
After skirting a park the road leaves the 20 zone and crosses the B6196 at a mini-roundabout immediately afterwards. It continues along Stephen Street to end at a T-junction on the A58 Bolton Road.
