The former B5028 headed past the church from the war memorial
The B5028 was a short link road in Uttoxeter town centre.
The B5017 entered town along Bridge Street before turning off in the Market Place. The B5028 continued ahead along the remainder of Bridge Street to end on the A518 Church Street about a hundred yards further on. Owing to the road's short length it is not known how long the number lasted. What is certain is that the road is now unclassified.
The B5028 number was later used for part of the former A50 route through the town, namely Bradley Street. However, rather than following Back Lane, as the A50 appears to have done, the B5028 used Silver Street. The maps showing this change no longer label the former B5028 section of Bridge Street, so it is impossible to know whether the two routes co-existed, or whether the number was moved with Bridge Street becoming a short spur of the B5017.
