The B6292 is an urban link road near Bury.
The road starts at traffic lights on the B6196 in the western suburb of Starling and heads south along Starling Road. This northern section of the road was originally unclassified. It gained Class II status in 1935 but cannot have been the B6292 from the outset as that number was then still in use elsewhere. There are glimpses of open fields on this stretch although the road remains urban for its whole length. It's not long before traffic lights are reached and we cross the A58.
Originally the road ahead was the A668 but that road disappeared in the early 1970s and the B6292 came into existence by taking over some of its old route. We therefore continue south and climb to go over a dismantled railway line by an old mill, now offices. Now in the Radcliffe suburb of Black Lane we go over another dismantled railway line then continue along the dead-straight road towards the town centre. The road ends at traffic lights on the A665. We have to turn left here but all movements from the A-road are allowed.
