B6274 Staindrop - Richmond
Crossing the River Tees

The B6274 is a cross-country B-road in the northeast of England.

The road starts by the church in the village of Staindrop. As the A688 from Barnard Castle bends sharply to the north the B6274 continues ahead but soon starts to head southwards. It crosses the undulating terrain of this part of Durham before zigzagging right then left half a mile before reaching the A67 Winston bypass.

Originally the B6274 multiplexed along the A67 west into the centre of the village but now simply crosses the bypass via a long staggered crossroads before having to TOTSO left at the point it used to turn off the A67. The road then descends to cross a narrow bridge over the River Tees before climbing up the far bank. A mile further on, the next village, Caldwell, is reached. The road bends sharply right at the far end of the village street before going over a disused railway cutting and reaching Forcett Park.

The road goes clockwise around the estate to reach Forcett village. It then continues south, eventually leaving Forcett Park behind. The road continues more-or-less straight (although there are a couple of tight bends) before the A66 is reached. This is crossed via a staggered crossroads and two gaps in the central reservation.

On the far side of the dual-carriageway the B6274 descends steeply into the valley of the Gilling Beck, which it crosses in the village of Gilling West. (There is a Gilling East but this is on the B1363 much further east.) The road then climbs again to pass the grounds of Aske Hall and enter the outskirts of Richmond. The road ends to the east of the town centre at a roundabout on the A6108.
