The B672 is a rural B-road in Rutland.

It starts on the A47 on the edge of Morcott and heads southwards. It descends steeply into the valley of the River Welland, bending sharply to the right to run parallel to the river.

The road goes under the Welland Viaduct on the Oakham to Kettering railway line before reaching a T-junction on the minor road from Harringworth. The B672 TOTSOs right before bending sharply left and then running straight for a few hundred yards.

After going through Thorpe by Water the road continues on via a sharp left-right zigzag. It passes very few buildings until it reaches Caldecott at the end of the road. The B672 ends in the centre of the village at a T-junction on the A6003.

History

Originally the B672 ran to the northeast of Morcott, ending on the A1 All Saints' Place in Stamford. The road was extended southwest in the mid-1920s along its current route to reach the A6003 in Caldecott. However, the original section of B672 was upgraded to Class I status in 1935, becoming the A6121, leaving the section that remains.
