Four Lane Ends, Eccleshall

The A5013 runs southeastwards from Eccleshall in Staffordshire to the county town of Stafford. Until 1935 it was part of the B5026.

It starts at a mini-roundabout junction with the A519 in Eccleshall and leaves the town, appropriately enough, along Stafford Road. Running through level farmland in the valley of the River Sow, the route passes through Little Bridgeford (just a few houses) and then the larger settlement of Great Bridgeford, where the B5405 comes in from the right, after which we immediately cross over the West Coast Main Line and the Sow.

The next mile and a half brings us to Cresswell and Junction 14 of the M6, which also serves a short SW–NE spur of the A34. A final mile along Eccleshall Road (signed, but not mapped, as a primary route) leads to a roundabout junction with the main line of the A34 to the north of Stafford town centre.
