Route outline (key)
B6373 Link in Dalkeith

The B6373 is a short link road in Dalkeith town centre, connecting the A6106 (former A68) to itself.

London Road

The route starts at a mini-roundabout on the A6106 Edinburgh Road and heads south along Old Edinburgh Road, which climbs past old stone buildings and then passes between the church and graveyard. It soon reaches traffic lights on the A6094 High Street, where B6373 traffic (from either direction) is prohibited from turning north onto the A6094; the reverse movements are allowed. The B6373 then continues east along Buccleuch Street, which curves around the back of the town centre past the Library, Council offices, and a handful of other businesses. After crossing Lothian Street at lights, London Road is more residential and soon comes to an end at traffic lights on the A6106 Newmills Road.

History

As originally classified in 1922, only the southern part of the route was numbered as the B6373. It was extended north west of the A6094 to reach the A6106, Edinburgh Road some time later, although the earliest map to definitively show the extension is the 1950 edition of the OS 1:2500 sheet. It is highly likely that the route was extended some years earlier. Rather intriguingly, although almost certainly a mistake, the provisional edition of the OS 1:25,000 map from 1947 shows the whole route as unclassified.

The 1922 MOT Road List defines this route as: Link at Dalkeith
