|Route outline (key)|
The B6233 is another small, and arguably undeserving of a number, route in suburban Blackburn.
The excitement quota on this road is completely used up on the Shear Brow section, as it climbs up a 1 in 6 hill whilst avoiding speed humps and pedestrian refuges. If you manage that, there's a speed camera at the top of the hill.
Once past St Mary's College, the road turns right at the Four Lane Ends signals and starts to drop down a long hill through Pleckgate before it meets the A6119 at the Knowles Arms signals (before the construction of the A6119 the B6233 continued ahead to meet the A666).
