The B6351 is a rural B-road in north Northumberland.
The road starts on the B6352 to the north of Kilham and heads south, crossing Bowmont Water before reaching a T-junction. Originally the road started just under a mile further west, crossing the river at the next bridge upstream before turning east to reach the current route of the road. The road was diverted in the 2000s and the original river crossing is now closed to traffic.
The B6351 TOTSOs left at the T-junction at Kilham and heads roughly eastwards, forming the northern boundary of the Northumberland National Park. The road follows the river valley downstream, with high hills on both sides. Presently the road passes the hamlet of Westnewton and crosses the College Burn. The valley now begins to open out and Kirknewton is then reached. Although tiny, this settlement appears to be the main village in the valley as it has a church; it did have a school and post office but these are now closed.
The road continues east, passing below Yeavering Bell and through Yeavering, now little more than a farmstead but at one time the seat of the Kings of Northumberland. The road reaches Akeld shortly afterwards, where it ends at a T-junction on the A697.
