The B6248 is a short link road in east Lancashire.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A682 (former A56) in the centre of Brierfield and heads west along Railway Street, descending steeply before levelling out to cross the East Lancashire Line at a level crossing by Brierfield station. After passing between two high brick walls (hiding factories) the road crosses the Leeds & Liverpool Canal. Shortly afterwards it goes over the M65 before zigzagging to climb steeply out of the valley.
The road levels out and crosses fields before ending on the A6068 (former B6247) on the edge of the village of Fence. Before the bypass was built, the road continued ahead to end at the next T-junction.
