Descending into Cullingworth
The B6429 is a largely urban road in west Yorkshire. It was originally unclassified but gained its number around 1930.
The route starts at traffic lights opposite the fire station on the B6265 (former A650) at the west end of Main Street in Bingley. It heads west along the narrow Millgate and soon crosses the River Aire. On the far side of the river it climbs steeply into a wood before levelling out and entering Harden. It takes some time to reach the open fields, after which we descend into Cullingworth.
After crossing a beck we climb into the village centre then head south along Halifax Road to a mini-roundabout, where we cross the B6144. After going under a bridge carrying a dismantled railway line we climb across the fields to end at a T-junction on the A629. There are two further roads at this junction, to carry traffic turning left from the B6429 onto the A629 and for traffic turning left from the A-road onto our road.
