The B6472 is a short link road in the northern suburbs of Bolton. It was originally numbered A6059 but gained its present number in the 1960s.

The road starts at traffic lights on the A666 by Egerton war memorial and heads southeast along Darwen Road. Darwen, incidentally, is to the north and reached along the A666. Initially we contour along the side of a valley, with a drop on the right and houses above us on the left. Presently the terrain levels out (although the B6472 remains flat) and the road becomes lined with houses on both sides. After running through the suburb of Toppings we pass between a green and a garden centre and then meet the B6391 immediately before going under the railway line from Bolton to Blackburn.

Now on Turton Road the B6472 bears right to run almost southwards. It isn't long before the end of the road is reached, at traffic lights on the A676.
