Roch Valley Way

The B6452 is a link road west of Rochdale town centre. The road was originally unclassified north of the B6222 and non-existent to the south; it appears the road gained Class II status by the late 1940s and was then extended south in the 1970s.

The road starts at traffic lights on the A680 in the Spotland area of town. Whilst the residential road to the north is dual-carriageway none of the classified roads at this junction are. We head south to pass the Spotland Stadium and continue along the residential Sandy Lane; side roads are named after World War I battles.

We leave the houses behind as we pass between a cricket field and a cemetery and then cross the B6222 at traffic lights to run onto the newer Roch Valley Way. A few more houses front onto the B6452 but then we come in sight of open fields as we cross the River Roch. On the far side of the river the houses come back and after a few bends we reach traffic lights and journey's end, although confusingly there's an extra set of signals before the actual junction to allow traffic from a side road to join us. To the left and the right is the A58, whilst the road ahead is the A664 which quickly meets the A627(M). At this junction the only road that is not dual-carriageway is the B6452.
