B6298 Stanley Crook – Crook
Looking down Billy Hill

The B6298 is a short B-road through the Durham town of Crook.

It starts on the B6299 in Stanley Crook and heads southwards. The road immediately descends the steep Billy Hill and goes through the settlement of Billy Row. At the bottom of the hill the road enters open country for a short distance (although it never loses the streetlights) before reaching the northern edge of Crook. It runs through town for a short distance to reach a mini-roundabout on the A690. Originally the B6298 ran along the narrow Hope Street but this is now closed to through traffic and the road follows a route to the left along an old railway alignment.

For some years the B6298 ended here, and the terminus road was the A689. In the 2000s the latter road was rerouted to bypass the town centre and so the A690 and B6298 were extended. There is therefore a multiplex east along the A690 to traffic lights at the original A689 / A690 junction, where the B6298 regains its number by turning right. The road now heads south along New Road (the old route of the A689) to the outskirts of town, where it ends at the southern end of the A689 relief road, with the northbound TOTSOing here.
