|Route outline (key)|
The second incarnation of the B6266, like the present one, was in the centre of Rochdale. Owing to the road's short length its history is not fully known but it was in existence by the 1950s. When the new A58 route was built around the north of the town centre, the two routes effectively swapped numbers.
Starting where the A58 turned from Manchester Road into The Esplanade the B6266 headed north along the remainder of Manchester Road before bearing right into Lord Street. It ended at the junction with the A627 Blackwater Street; following the construction of the Exchange shopping centre this location no longer exists.
