|Route outline (key)|
The second use of the B667 number was to the northeast of Leicester. This road was originally unclassified but gained the number around 1930, making it an early use of a recycled number.
The road started on the A47 Uppingham Road in Humberstone, now a suburb of Leicester. It headed north along Humberstone Drive before continuing past the golf course onto Thurmaston Lane, showing the road's final destination. At the far end of the golf course the road bore left, then right over the Melton Brook onto Humberstone Lane. The road curved to the left to cross the Midland Main Line before continuing on to end on the A46 (present A607) in Thurmaston.
The B667 no longer exists. The central section is part of the A563 Leicester northern bypass whilst the remainder is unclassified. Thurmaston Lane has been closed off at its northern end and can now only be used by motor vehicles as access to a modern housing estate.
