The B6348 is a cross-country route in north Northumberland.
Starting from a junction with the A697 on the eastern edge of Wooler town centre, the road heads east and immediately crosses a narrow bridge over the Wooler Water. We soon enter open country and the road runs along the base of an escarpment before starting to climb up the slope to avoid crossing the River Till. It then bends to the right and levels out before the B6349 turns off to the left.
After another few hundred yards heading south-by-southeast the B6348 bends to the left and starts descending back towards the river valley. We reach the village of Chatton and follow New Road before crossing a narrow bridge over the River Till to reenter the fields. The road heads towards the edge of the valley and climbs up the slope onto Chatton Moor.
The B6348 continues for a couple of miles across the moor before descending to the coastal plain. It zigzags through Bellshill, with the sea just about visible at about 10 o'clock, and ends shortly afterwards at a T-junction on the A1.
