B6524 Belsay - Morpeth
Belsay

The B6524 is a cross-country road in east Northumberland. It was originally numbered A6087 but was downgraded to its present number in the 1970s.

The road starts on the A696 on the northern side of the small village of Belsay and heads east. The first couple of miles of B6524 consist of straight sections of road interspersed with sharp corners; we presently reach Whalton, to the northeast of Belsay, having only travelled in a northeasterly direction for a short distance. There's a sharp right-hand bend by the village green onto the main street and we head east through the village, bearing sharply left at the far end.

After another sharp right-hand bend the road starts to become more winding but with far shallower bends. We head northeastwards across the fields and presently go under the A1 Morpeth bypass. There's no junction here which could be why this road now has Class II status. The road retains its rural air as it passes through a golf course and ends at a T-junction on the B1337 (pre-bypass A1) on the edge of Morpeth without having become urban.
