Route outline (key)
B6468 Hyde – Gee Cross
The James North Clock, Hyde

The B6468 in Hyde was the A627 before that road was rerouted via Dowson Road (the former A6113) in the 1970s.

The route starts on the southern edge of Hyde town centre where the southbound A627 TOTSOs right at traffic lights from Market Street onto Dowson Road. The B6468 heads southeast from here along the remainder of Market Street, the main features of which are a primary school to the left and a car dealership to the right.

On reaching a small roundabout, at the centre of which stands the James North Clock (it once graced the tower of a local mill), we bear right and the rest of our route is named Stockport Road. Quickly passing over a former railway line, now a footpath, the road continues southward, rising very gently towards the point where it ends by trailing into the A560. An old cast-iron fingerpost here still labels the road we have just followed "A627 Hyde 1, Manchester 8".

An OpenStreetMap trace for this route awaits uploading to the SABRE Wiki.
