The B6294 is a short B-road near the Cumbrian town of Alston.
The route starts to the north of the town by turning south off the A686 to the south of Clarghyll Hall. However, the road immediately takes on the air of a minor county lane rather than the Class II road it is. We head roughly parallel to the A686 to begin with before heading anticlockwise around Newshield Moss, climbing as we go.
After reaching a summit the road starts to descend gradually and goes through the hamlet of Blagill, which does not seem like much but was specifically mentioned on the road's itinerary in the 1922 Road Lists. The road bends sharply right as it crosses a valley before contouring round the next escarpment. Eventually it bears to the right to cross the River Nent by Foreshield Bridge.
