Route

The B6229 consists of two parallel roads either side of the A674 to the north of Chorley.

Northern section: Moss Lane

Crossing the Leeds & Liverpool Canal

This is the original line of the B6229. We start on the A6 to the south of Lucas Green and head east along Moss Lane. The road quickly reaches a diversion which crosses a bridge over the M61 after which the road heads more northerly before bending to the right to cross a narrow bridge over the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. After crossing a mini-roundabout the road reaches a T-junction on the dual-carriageway A674.

Southern section: Harper's Lane

Theoretically the B6229 then multiplexes east along the A674 to traffic lights before following a useless multiplex south along the B6228 (original A674) back over the canal and the M61. It may be simpler just to say that the road is a duplicate.

The B6229 reappears at a roundabout on the B6228 on the edge of Chorley. It heads west along the original line of the A674, asking the question why the ex-A674 north of the roundabout was renumbered B6228 and not B6229. Harper's Lane is largely residential. Eventually the railway line is crossed, after which the B6229 ends at a roundabout, back on the A6.
