Route outline (key)
B6225 Littleborough – Milnrow
Towards Smithy Bridge

The B6225 is a semi-rural B-road in south Lancashire.

The route starts immediately to the east of the Calderdale Line by turning off the A58 in Littleborough. It heads south alongside the railway line, passing the back entrance to the station, before bending to the left and crossing the Rochdale Canal. The road then climbs into open country.

We skirt Cleggswood Hill before reaching Hollingworth Lake, a reservoir. The road bends sharply to the right to follow the shore of the lake and enter Smithy Bridge. The reservoir was already in existence when the B6225 gained its number in 1922 and so the route has always skirted it in this way.

After becoming more residential the road bends to the right then turns left at a mini-roundabout and soon re-enters open country. It crosses the fields to reach Milnrow. On the northern edge of town the road splits to pass either side of a house, then reaches a T-junction immediately afterwards, where it turns right. It descends Kiln Lane to reach a mini-roundabout. Originally the B6225 ended here on the A640. However, that road was rerouted to cater for the construction of the M62 and so the B6225 has taken over the short section vacated. It therefore turns right at the mini-roundabout to cross a stream and end at traffic lights on the current A640.
