B6326 Balderton - Newark-on-Trent
This article is about the current B6326 near Newark.
For the original B6326 to the west of Newcastle, see B6326 (Newcastle)
.


The B6326 follows part of the former A1 Great North Road through Newark-on-Trent. It became the A6065 with the opening of the eastern Newark Bypass in 1964 but gained its current number with the opening of the northern Bypass in 1990.

The road starts with a simple fork junction with the A1 to the south of Newark. The A1 branches left, but our road curves to the right towards a suburb of Balderton. This is a relatively new village, accessed from two roundabouts from our road. Shortly after these junctions, we cross the A1 at a complex roundabout interchange, which has no access to the main road southbound.

We are now in Balderton itself, a suburb of Newark, on the wide London Road. The road is fairly ordinary until we reach the centre of Newark, where we split to the left (still on London Road), and stop at a signalised T-junction with the B6166. We carry straight on, but the B6166 takes over here, so we must multiplex under its number until we get to the other side of the town centre.

Trent Bridge

The B6326 regains its identity at a roundabout just next to Newark Castle. The road then crosses the River Trent by means of a wide bridge. We immediately cross a mini-roundabout (serving a supermarket and Newark Castle railway station), and then across the Nottingham–Lincoln railway by means of a level crossing. We pass the cattle market on our right before reaching the A46 Newark northern bypass at a large roundabout, where the B6326 ends. From here we can also access the A617 to Mansfield, or the A616, which is where the old Great North Road continued towards Muskham.
