|Route outline (key)|
The B6310 is a relatively short B-road in north Durham.
The road starts on the A694 in the centre of Shotley Bridge and then heads east up Snow's Green Road, climbing out of the Derwent Valley. The road skirts the edge of the urban area and crosses a disused railway cutting just before reaching open country. The road continues to climb. It crosses the B6309 near the top of the hill before levelling out and getting to Medomsley.
In the centre of the village the road reaches a T-junction and TOTSOs left, with the B6308 going right. The road then reaches the fields once more and starts to descend. It goes through a wood before reaching a T-junction on the A694. However, this is actually a spur and the mainline of the B6310 had to TOTSO right a few yards previously.
The road continues east along the southern edge of the settlement of Hamsterley Mill. A stream is crossed and then the road climbs out of the valley once more, running along rather than up the hill. Eventually Burnopfield is reached and the road runs along Front Street. It meets the B6314 before ending shortly afterwards at a sharply angled T-junction on the A692.
