|Route outline (key)|
The B6379 number was allocated to the road between Hook Moor and Towton in Yorkshire as part of the annual numbering revisions on 1st April 1924. However, it was discovered in September of that year that since it ran entirely east of the A1, it was out of zone. The number B1217 was available, since the original road with that number had been upgraded to the A1077 as part of the April revisions, and the B6379 number was retired for use elsewhere.
Starting on the original route of the A1 at Hook Moor (slightly further west than the present A1(M)) the road headed northeast. It skirted the grounds of Lotherton Hall and passed a few more isolated buildings but met no places of any size. The road ended still in open country, just to the south of the village of Towton.
