Railway bridge over the B6481 at Stourton
This version of the B6481 is the former A639 through the Leeds suburb of Stourton before it was bypassed following the coming of the M1 in the early 1970s.
The road starts at traffic lights at the northern end of the bypass, where the A639 bears off southwards to the M621 (formerly M1). We head southeastwards along Pontefract Road through an industrial estate. We go straight across a roundabout then go under the Leeds to Castleford railway line. Still industrial, we now continue on to return to the A639 at the northern roundabout of M1 J44.
