The B6530 runs along the former A69 into Corbridge from the east before the latter road was diverted via the bypass in the 1980s.
The road starts at a crossroads in Corbridge town centre. The road to the west takes B6321 and B6529 traffic north whilst the road to the north brings it back again; both roads multiplex along the former number south over the River Tyne, whilst our road heads east along Main Street.
Although Main Street is the widest road leaving the crossroads the road narrows further on, with a chicane just before we move into the suburbs. A detour dating to the 1940s takes the road around the grounds of Howden Dene, then we continue east across the fields to reach the A69 bypass. We run alongside briefly before bearing sharply left to end at a roundabout on that road, where we also meet the A68 eastern bypass.
