This is a tale of two A6177s. The first is the Bradford Outer Ring Road, which dates to the 1970s. The second was formerly a route between Blackburn and Haslingden, both in Lancashire, which was upgraded from a B-road when the M65 was opened in 1997. It seems that no one noticed the duplicated road number for some years, but in 2005 most of the road went back to its original number of B6232, and the section west of the M65 became the A6077. Order has thus been restored!

Have a look at the route of the A6187 on a map and you'll see that it proceeds for some distance along the Hope Valley in the Peak District, south-west of Sheffield, before coming to an abrupt end at the village of Castleton, out of which there are no classified roads. Why?

The answer is that it used to be part of the A625, a route between Sheffield and Manchester avoiding the notorious Snake Pass. However, the section of the A625 at Mam Tor was built on loose shale which had been sliding for centuries, and in 1979 it was finally abandoned, leaving the A625 in two dead-end sections connected only by the unclassified (and heavily restricted) Winnats Pass Road. The western end between Chapel-en-le-Frith and Mam Tor was subsequently declassified in 2000, and the eastern part was re-routed to Calver, where it joined the A623 to provide an alternative route to Chapel-en-le-Frith. However, the large number of tourist attractions in the Castleton area meant that a new A-road number was needed for the former middle section of the A625 between Fox House and Castleton, and thus the A6187 was born.
