The B6382 runs through Ilkley, remaining roughly parallel to the A65 on which it terminates at either end. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.
From the east, the road turns south from the A65 and heads under the railway line next to Ben Rhydding station, before turning west along Bolling Road. This then becomes Springs Lane and Station Road as it passes Ilkley's terminus station. We are now in Ilkley Town Centre, a small shopping area sandwiched between the B6382 and the A65 to the north. We run along The Grove, a tree lined street with shops and public buildings much as Station Road was; this becomes Bolton Bridge Road as it swings to the north and rejoins the A65.
