|Route outline (key)|
The B6302 is a medium-length B-road running west from Durham.
The road starts in the village of Cornsay Colliery, one of many settlements in this part of the country named after a mine that no longer exists. We turn east off the B6301 at the bottom of the valley of the Hedleyhope Burn. The road reaches open country almost immediately and follows the valley downstream into Esh Winning. It runs along Newhouse Road into the village centre, where it reaches a T-junction.
The road TOTSOs left and appears to go round the second side of a triangle to meet the third side, Fair View. On leaving the village we reach the valley of the River Deerness (which has the Hedleyhope Burn as a tributary) and the road continues downstream, not following the valley particularly closely. After running parallel to the old railway cutting, the road continues across the fields to the village of Ushaw Moor. Over half a mile afterwards it crosses the East Coast Main Line before running parallel to the River Browney to Stone Bridge, where the B6302 ends at a roundabout on the A690.
