B6470 Swinton - Norham
A country road near Swinton

The B6470 is a rural road which crosses the England/Scotland border. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1930s.

The road starts on the A6112 to the east of the Scottish village of Swinton and heads east across the fields, descending gently as it does so. After a few bends the road reaches the wide River Tweed, crossing it at a bridge narrow enough that it only just fits two lanes of traffic. Now in England, we soon reach Norham, the only place of any size en route. A left-hand bend takes us into West Street but, in sight of the village green, we bear right to avoid the village centre and quickly reenter open country.

We continue across the fields, on a largely straight road with occasional bends. Presently the end of the road is reached, at a crossroads on the A698. The isolated Salutation Inn is just to the left.
