This article is about the current B6446 in Kirkby Lonsdale.
For the earlier B6446 in Nelson, see B6446 (Nelson)
Heading west along New Road
The B6446 follows the original route of the A65 into Kirkby Lonsdale from the west before the bypass was built in the 1930s.
Turning off the A65 at the western end of the bypass the B6446 heads east to enter town along Kendal Road. After a few bends a T-junction is reached. Although the B6446 TOTSOs right we technically join a one-way system on the B6254 here. We follow the two-way New Road into the town centre to end where the road bends round to the right in the Market Place. Here the southbound B6254 comes in from the left along the one-way Main Street; northbound B6254 traffic has to follow New Road before bearing sharply right into the one-way Mitchelgate at the B6446 TOTSO.
