|Route outline (key)|
The B5027 is a cross-country route in central Staffordshire.
The road originally started on the A51 in Little Stoke, now a suburb of Stone. However, with the completion of the Stone bypass, the A51 was rerouted, so now the B5027 takes the old route of this road within the bypass (with the exception of that now occupied by the A520 loop in Stone town centre) and therefore branches off itself in Little Stoke.
After leaving Stone, the B5027 travels more-or-less eastwards through Staffordshire countryside. Half way between Stone and Milwich, it crosses the B5066 at a crossroads, where the B5027 has priority.
About three miles after Milwich, the B5027 crosses the River Blythe, the only actual river it crosses (although it does cross several brooks) and then the Stoke to Derby railway line at a level crossing. It passes through Bramshall and enters Uttoxeter.
The B5027 has never reached the centre of Uttoxeter. The road TOTSOs right on the western edge of the town centre before reaching a T-junction where it originally ended on the A518. That road now bypasses the town, so the B5027 TOTSOs right again to cross another level crossing to end on a roundabout on the current route of the A518.
