B105 Spur in Soldierstown
Soldierstown Road

The B105 is a short road in central Northern Ireland. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.

The road starts on the B12 in the centre of Aghalee and follows the residential Soldierstown Road through town. We zigzag over the abandoned Lagan Canal then follow it into open country. After winding across the fields the canal is crossed again then we enter Soldierstown, where the road splits. A spur continues ahead to end on the A26 whilst the original route of the B105 TOTSOs right; a sign here claims the road is the B103 but that is incorrect.

We follow a straight route down the surprisingly narrow Chestnut Hill Road to reach a T-junction. Originally the B105 ended here on the B12. However, when that road was upgraded to become the A26 this section was bypassed to allow access to the new M1. As such the B105 now TOTSOs right to go over a level crossing on the Belfast to Dublin railway line by Moira station then go over the Lagan Canal a final time. It's not long before we go over the motorway, after which we continue into Moira to end at a crossroads on the A3 on the eastern side of town.
