Heading north on the now-unclassified former B6526
The B6526 was the former A56 between Rawtenstall and Edenfield in east Lancashire. The road was short-lived, existing for a few years after the bypass was built in the early 1970s but is now unclassified.
The road started near the station at what is now a roundabout, where it met the A56 (present A682) and A621 and headed south along Bury Road, soon crossing the River Irwell. It continued through the suburbs of New Hall Hey and Townsend Fold, following the Irwell valley, the railway line and the new route of the A56, although our road remained to the east of all of them.
After a few fields the road reached the northern edge of Edenfield. It entered town along Burnley Road to end on the B6527, which continued the ex-A56 south; there are traffic lights here.
