The A6003 is an A-class road in England, linking Kettering in Northamptonshire with Corby and Oakham, the latter in Rutland. The road briefly encounters Leicestershire between the villages of Rockingham and Caldecott. The road forms the principal link between Corby and the rest of Northamptonshire, as well as between Rutland and Northamptonshire.


The road starts out at junction 10 of the A14, heading past Wicksteed Park and into Kettering. Through the town it is a single carriageway until encountering the A43 at a recently signalised roundabout. From here it passes a new industrial development and heads north towards Corby. The stretch between the A43 and the A6014 road in Corby is the only length of dual carriageway on the route. Skirting the edge of Corby, the road passes the Eyebrook Reservoir before crossing the A47 at a roundabout at Uppingham. North of here it passes Rutland Water before arriving at Oakham, where a new bypass has recently been constructed.
