|Route outline (key)|
The B6378 is a cross-country road in Yorkshire. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the early 1920s.
The road turns south off the A645 on the western edge of the village of Sharlston Common and heads southwest into Crofton, where it meets the A638 by the war memorial. On the far side the B6378 is one-way in this direction as it passes the first few houses; it was clearly once two-way but the left-hand side of the road is now hatched out. The road soon becomes two-way again and continues to a mini-roundabout. The road to the right is a two-way spur of the B6378 which soon returns to the A638, whilst the mainline bears left.
We zigzag through Crofton, going over a couple of speed bumps before having to TOTSO right onto a road that remains traffic-calmed. Presently the road re-enters open fields and then goes under two railway lines with a nature reserve between the two; the second line carries the main line from London to Leeds. The road becomes traffic-calmed again as it enters Walton. A couple of mini-roundabouts are crossed as we pass through the village centre, then go over a freight-only railway line. On the far side there's a T-junction and we turn right.
We briefly head north, with fields on the left and houses on the right, before the B6378 TOTSOs left at the next (unsigned) turn and continues west into the Wakefield suburb of Sandal, where it ends at a T-junction on the B6132.
