|Route outline (key)|
The B6349 is a cross-country B-road in north Northumberland.
The road starts on the edge of a hill to the west of Fowberry, by turning east off the B6348. Road signs warn of a weak bridge ahead. We head east along a straight road, descending into the valley of the River Till, where the road skirts the Fowberry Estate before crossing said weak bridge. The road narrows deliberately here to discourage traffic from crossing the bridge, which is narrow and bends sharply to the left before even reaching the river. The road becomes S2 again on the far side.
The road continues eastwards along the valley bottom for another couple of miles. After zigzagging to cross a stream the road climbs steeply out of the valley onto Lyham Moor before descending onto the less bleak Belford Moor. Presently the road starts to descend once more and reaches Belford.
The road enters the village along West Street and reaches a T-junction in the market square. Originally the B6349 ended here on the original line of the A1. The unclassified road to the left is signposted to the A1 northbound but the B6349 now TOTSOs right to head south along the pre-bypass A1. It runs along the High Street and South Road out of the village before bending sharply to the left; the road straight ahead is the old line of the A1.
