A5102 Wilmslow - Stockport

The A5102 is a semi-urban road to the south of Stockport. Originally numbered B5092 and B5093, it gained its current number around 1930.

Route

Wilmslow Road, near Woodford

It starts at a roundabout on the A538 to the east of Wilmslow and heads north over the River Bollon then east along Adlington Road to reach Dean Row. There by the use of adjacent roundabouts the B5358 is crossed.

The A5102 enters Stockport Metropolitan Borough, although we're not particularly metropolitan to begin with. We soon reach Woodford, whose aerodrome used to be the home of British Aerospace but this is now closed. We reach a roundabout where the A5149 goes straight on and the A5102 turns left along Woodford Road as the dominant number in a multiplex with the A5149 and reach the eastern terminus of the A555 at its terminus, which currently is rather optimistically signposted to Manchester Airport.

The A5102 continues into Bramhall, a busy Stockport suburb. The multiplex ends here at a mini-roundabout, where we bear right to continue along Bramhall Lane South under a railway bridge by the station. We continue to reach Bramall roundabout (spelt without the H) where we meet the A5143 and pass the grounds of the imposing Bramall Hall.

The road continues over the old Midland Railway line from London St Pancras to Manchester Central, now a freight line, and goes through the suburb of Davenport, where it passes the station. The road ends at traffic lights on the A6 to the south of Stockport town centre.
