|Route outline (key)|
The B6426 was a short road in south Hertfordshire. It was originally unclassified but gained its number around 1930.
The road started on the A414 (now A1057) to the east of St Albans and headed south briefly before continuing southeastwards, keeping in this direction for the remainder of its route. It crossed the A405 (now A414) before going through Colney Heath and then met the B556 in Roestock.
After skirting North Mymms Park the road ended on the A1 in the Water End area of town. Construction of the A1(M) in the 1970s severed the eastern end of the B6426 and downgraded the A1, which here still exists on the far side of the motorway, meaning that the B6426 had to be downgraded too.
