The A5149 is a largely urban A-road which runs through northern Cheshire. The road was created out of some of the B5095 and all of the B5092 in the 1960s.

We start at traffic lights on the A560 in Cheadle, in Stockport Metropolitan Borough. The road heads south along Wimslow Road, the original line of the A34. That soon turns off, still on Wilmslow Road, and we continue along Cheadle Road past a golf course and into Cheadle Hulme. At traffic lights the B5095 continues ahead whilst we TOTSO left then right at the next set of lights onto Station Road.

Ack Lane East, Bramhall

We go under the Manchester to Crewe and Manchester to Macclesfield railway lines by the Y-shaped Cheadle Hulme station and then bear right at a mini-roundabout to go back over the Macclesfield line and reach another mini-roundabout which is the other end of the B5095; this road has taken a more suburban route to the west and was indeed the main road before the A5149 came into being. We continue along the winding Ack Lane into Bramhall where, at a mini-roundabout in the suburb centre, we join the A5102.

There's now a multiplex south for about a mile along the A5102 past the A555 into the village of Woodford, where the two roads split at a roundabout. The A5149 regains its number and heads east. Confusingly, the road becomes less rural as we leave the metropolitan borough and enter Poynton. After going over the Manchester to Macclesfield line one final time, by Poynton station, we continue along Chester Road to end on the A523 in the town centre. This junction was a signalised crossroads until 2011 when it was rebuilt and turned into a shared space, where pedestrians and vehicles have priority.
