|Route outline (key)|
The B669 is a fairly short link road in north Northamptonshire.
It starts at A14 J4 to the south of Rothwell and then heads north into town along what was the A6 until construction of the Rothwell western bypass in the 1990s. The B576 is soon met; that road TOTSOs at the junction and continues along the old A6 to the far end of the bypass. It is also the dominant partner in a multiplex through Rothwell and Desborough for about two and a half miles.
The B669 reappears at a roundabout to the north of Desborough, still on the old A6. It then heads roughly northwards, although there are several sharp bends on the route.
The road goes through no places of any size - and passes only a few buildings - before reaching Stoke Albany. There is a westbound onslip leading to the A427 bypass immediately before the road goes under the bypass. The road continues ahead into the centre of the village where it reaches a T-junction. This is the original end of the B669 but it was extended along the pre-bypass A427 when the bypass was built. The road to the left runs through the village before reaching no-entry signs as it also acts as the eastbound offslip from the bypass.
The mainline of the B669 TOTSOs right at the T-junction to pass through the next village of Wilbarston before ending at a T-junction on the A427 at the far end of the bypass, thus providing access to both directions of that road.
