A5284 Kendal - Plumgarths

Route

The A5284 is the main road into Kendal from the northwest.

The exact southern end of the A5284 is difficult to spot. A number of roads in Kendal town centre have been declassified in recent years but numbering does not seem to have followed. As such, though it would seem by looking at a map that the A5284 starts at a mini-roundabout on the A6 by the station and then heads west over the River Kent along Sandes Avenue, in fact this is part of the A6. The A5284 starts where this road bends sharply right into Stricklandgate.

Windermere Road, Kendal

The road passes County Hall, former HQ of Westmorland County Council and continues northwestwards along Windermere Road. It takes some time to leave town - although open fields soon become visible on the left (often behind houses) there are still suburbs to the right. The road climbs for a few hundred yards and we finally reach open country. The road contours around a hill, with the valley of the River Kent visible to the right, and forms the boundary of the Lake District National Park. It soon reaches a roundabout on the A591 where the road ends.

History

The A5284 follows the original line of the A591 out of Kendal. The road was renumbered as an extension of the B5284 when the A591 was moved onto its present route along the western bypass. However, it was soon decided that this route needed Class I status. The A5284 number is presumably a direct upgrade of the B5284.
