The B6546 was created in 2008 to replace the former A629 through Burncross that used to form a primary road link from the M1 to Penistone before the A616 was opened in the late 1980s. It was incorrectly annotated as the B113 on OS maps for some years but has been labelled with its correct number since the mid-2010s.
The road starts at a triangular junction on the A61 in Low Hall Wood and heads east through the wood to reach Burncross, where the road becomes residential. Most of the buildings are post-WWII but a few older buildings can also be seen. We descend to the east along Burncross Road and presently reach Chapeltown, where the road becomes lined with shops. After crossing a roundabout we go under the Sheffield to Barnsley railway line by Chapeltown station then end at a roundabout just afterwards. The A629 reappears here to continue ahead, whilst left and right is the A6135.
