The B6375 is a short link road south of Sheffield. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the early 1920s; it is the first 4-digit B-road in the 6-zone to be come into being after the original 1922 classification.
The road starts on the A625 Ecclesall Road South and heads east, signposted for traffic that wants to avoid Sheffield city centre. It follows the straight, leafy, suburban Whirlowdale Road, ending after half a mile where the B6068 comes in from the left along Abbey Lane and turns to take over the road ahead.
Originally the B6375 continued into Ecclesall Wood and the suburb of Millhouses to end on the A621 Abbeydale Road. This section was declassified around 1990 and the A621 junction has now been closed to traffic.
