We construct supergravity solutions describing branes (D2-branes or NS 5-branes or waves) localized within D6-branes in the region close to the core of the D6-branes. Other similar string-theory and M-theory 'near-core' localized solutions can be found by applying U-duality and/or lifting D = 10 solutions to D = 11. In particular, the D2-branes localized on D6-branes is T-dual to a special case of the background describing (D)strings localized on (D)5-branes and thus is also related to a localized intersection of M2-branes and M5-branes. D6 + wave configuration is U-dual to a D0-brane localized on a Kaluza-Klein 5-brane or to the fundamental string intersecting a D5-brane with the point of intersection localized on D5-brane.
