|Route outline (key)|
The C96 is a lengthy route which seems to have been stitched together from several separate routes. It is certainly unlikely that anyone would need to drive it from one end to the other! It starts sensibly enough a little to the east of Birgham on the A698, and heads north east across the A697 and Leet Water. It doglegs to the left near Hirset Law, which leads onto a long straight to reach the A6112. A short multiplex to the north, and the route continues along a long straight to reach the B6437.
That really should be all of the C96, but it reappears about a mile further north on the B6437 and continues east to Upsettington and Ladykirk. Here it turns north, then north east to cross the B6470 near the border and on through Horndean to reach the ultimate end on the B6461.
