The B6249 is a short link road in the Lancashire town of Nelson.
The road starts in the town centre at traffic lights on the A682 as a one-way loop. Northbound B6249 traffic uses Stanley Street, which bears right into Every Street and traffic lights, where it meets the other direction and turns left into Carr Road. Southbound traffic continues along the full length of Carr Road to reach Manchester Road (the original line of the A682 before it was pedestrianised). It then bends to the right to run along a short section of Manchester Road to reach the A682 at the same traffic lights that it leaves from.
Heading northwest, the B6249 continues along Carr Road to go over the Leeds & Liverpool Canal and under the M65. It passes a park where it crosses the Pendle Water before climbing to end at a T-junction on the A6068 (former B6247) Barrowford Road.
Prior to the construction of Barrowford Road the B6249 had a slightly different route. After crossing the Pendle Water the road zigzagged to the left to reach Carr Hall Road. It followed this to the far end to reach the original line of the B6247 Wheatley Lane Road.
