|Route outline (key)|
The B69 is a medium-length B-road in north County Londonderry.
The road starts in the centre of Claudy on the B74 (former A6) and heads north out of town. It soon meets the rerouted A6 at a staggered crossroads. The B69 now runs close to the A6 for a short distance before bending sharply left as it climbs.
After running northwards for a couple of miles the B69 turns northeasterly once more as it runs across the hills. It meets few other roads in this section but does start to descend after passing a forest. The terrain becomes less bleak and the B69 crosses the fields on a straight road. Presently the B192 comes in from the right and the road reaches the outskirts of Limavady and then the now-unclassified original line of the A2, which was the road's original northern end, although it was soon extended north. Priorities have now changed and so the B69 bends to the right here to meet the A371 at a T-junction.
Limavady town centre lies to the right, on the far side of the River Roe. However, the route of the B69 lies to the left along what is now a multiplex along the A371. The A2 bypass is soon met at a roundabout, after which the B69 continues north along Seacoast Road. This is straight to begin with but there are several sharp corners later on. Eventually the River Roe is crossed and the road ends soon afterwards at a T-junction back on the A2.
