The B5003 linked Ashby (and what were the A50 and A453) to Overseal and the A444.
The B5003 began at a junction (the junction of Bath Street, Kilwardby Street, Market Street and Derby Road) with the A50 and A453 in Ashby. The B5003 first ran in a Westerly direction, through the Western end of Ashby and continued in a westerly direction for a distance after leaving Ashby.
About a mile after leaving Ashby, the B5003 turned towards the South-West before running through the village of Moira, where it met the B586. It turned sharply to the North to avoid Short Heath. After passing under the railway line (now gone, although the bridge remains), it crossed the county boundary and finally came to a halt on the A444 in the village of Overseal.
The road has now been declassified, possibly owing to the closeness of the A42.
