A53 Cookstown - Orritor
the Orritor Road leaving Cookstown

The A53 was a bizarre A road heading west from Cookstown for two and a half miles, to the small village of Orritor, where the road ended a road junction by bearing left into Tulnacross Road.

It is unknown why this narrow road was upgraded to Class I standards - it was originally unclassified but gained the A53 number in the late 1920s - nor why it ended at Orritor. The road survived until at least the 2000s but now appears to be unclassified, although the number is still used for directions by organisations such as the National Trust despite not appearing on any signs.
