B6277 Road

B6277 is said to be the highest B-road in Britain

Located in historic County Durham, in northern England, the paved B6277 is said to be the highest B-road in Britain.

Nestled in the north Pennines range, the road is totally paved. It's a heavily undulating road, so expect sections significantly steep. Along the way you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views across the Pennine. The landscape around is incredibly bleak. It's one of the highest roads of the country.

The road is 50.69 km (31.5 miles) long running from Alston, a town in Cumbria, ithin the civil parish of Alston Moor to Barnard Castle, a market town in Teesdale, County Durham. The road tops out at 599m (1,965ft) above the sea level.
