The A666 is a major road in Greater Manchester and Lancashire, England. Known as 'Manchester Road', 'Bolton Road' or 'Blackburn Road' depending on which area it is in, it runs from its junction with the A6 and A580 at the Irlams o' th' Height boundary with Pendlebury near Manchester, through Pendlebury, Clifton, Kearsley, Farnworth, Bolton, Darwen and Blackburn before meeting the A59 at Langho. Along the route are the West Pennine Moors, the Turton and Entwistle reservoir and the Entwistle reservoir forest.

It is sometimes referred to as "The Devil's Highway"[1] or "The Devil's Road" due to its 'satanic' numbering, as well as its high accident rate on the moors between Egerton and Darwen. Conversely, for a short length from the M61 Kearsley spur and bypassing Farnworth to central Bolton, it is known as "St Peter's Way".
