B6275 Barton Interchange - Royal Oak
Dere Street

Heading north through Yorkshire, the A1(M) meets Dere Street, the Roman road which connected the Eboracum (York) with the Antonine Wall in Caledonia in the area of Boroughbridge. It then follows the Roman road north past Scotch Corner as far as Barton Interchange (J56), where it heads off to the right towards Darlington. The B6275 is the northern continuation of Dere Street from this point.

The B6275 follows a 10-mile stretch of Dere Street, making it (on a low-scale map at least) one of the straightest classified roads in the country. From Barton it heads north, avoiding the villages to either side, before bearing left at Piercebridge to cross the River Tees to the west of the Roman bridge that gives the village its name. The ruins of a Roman bridge and fort still exist near the village.

From a road point-of-view, the B6275 reaches a T-junction in Piercebridge, on the original line of the A67. There was then a short multiplex to the east. However, when the A67 bypass was built the B6275 was extended along the whole of the pre-bypass road and so reaches the bypass at a T-junction to the left and a staggered crossroads to the right.

The road continues north. It is crossed by the B6279 over a mile further north, after which it starts to climb steeply. It ends at a T-junction on the A68. That road and Dere Street both end up in the Roman town of Corbridge but take somewhat different routes. An unclassified road ahead continued along Dere Street but shortly turns off leaving the Roman road to be marked by a track.
