The B6322 follows the pre-bypass route of the A69 through Haltwhistle Village. The road dates to the 1990s, making the number a duplicate.
We turn off the A69 at the western end of the bypass and head east into town along Tyne View Road, although the river does not actually become visible. It's not long before the road becomes lined with houses but pass a couple more fields as well before we zigzag over the Tyne Valley Railway Line. The road now bears right and has to give way to an unclassified road; the station is to the right whilst the road to the left is the original line of the A69 through the town centre.
We now continue ahead along the town's first bypass, dating to the 1970s. The next road to the right leads to what was once the only bridge over the River South Tyne for some distance but it was superseded when the bypass was built and the bridge is now closed to vehicular traffic. The B6322 continues along a wide, fairly straight route within sight of open fields. After crossing a burn the old road comes in from the left after which we bear sharply right to end at a T-junction back on the present A69.
