A5101 Link in Northampton
Park Avenue North

The A5101 is a short link road north-east of Northampton town centre. Originally unclassified, it appears to have gained its number in the 1930s.

The route starts at the junction of the A4500 and A5095 in Abington: this is a roundabout/crossroads hybrid, with the A5101 taking over the south-north alignment which the A5095 has followed as far as this point.

We head north along Park Avenue North (Park Avenue South being the A5095, which runs through Abington Park). This is a straight, residential road, lined with a few trees and featuring occasional mini-roundabout junctions with unclassified side roads. It continues for about half a mile before we reach the A5123. At one time our road and the A5123 met at a sharply-angled fork (which is still there) but now a roundabout has been built in the angle, thereby shortening the A5101 by a few yards.
