Route outline (key)
B5029 Blythe Bridge - Meir Heath

The B5029 is a short semi-rural B-road providing a short cut into Blythe Bridge from the south. It is also the signposted route to Blythe Bridge and the A521 from the A50 from Uttoxeter (avoiding the awkward A521 turn at Stonehouses). It keeps the same street name, Grindley Lane, for its entire length.

The road starts on the A521 (the old A50) in the centre of Blythe Bridge, within shouting distance (and certainly within congestion distance) of the level crossing on the Stoke to Derby railway line. The road heads west through the outskirts of Blythe Bridge, passing a primary school, before reaching a roundabout on the current A50. Turn left for Uttoxeter, right for Stoke, or stay on the B5029 for Stone and Stafford. An access road for a semi-derelict industrial complex also meets the roundabout.

After leaving the roundabout behind, the road immediately seems more rural. For most of the remainder of the route, the road marks the boundary of the City of Stoke-on-Trent (although confusingly the road itself remains entirely outside the city). We skirt the boundary of the industrial complex to the left, meeting its back entrance after about half a mile. To the right is the Stoke suburb of Meir Park. As the road starts getting more urban again, this is, ironically, a sign that we are leaving the city behind!

Meir Heath

We enter Meir Heath (not to be confused with Meir Park, or Meir) and soon come to an end on a double mini roundabout on the A520. The other roundabout, almost immediately to the left, is where the B5066 meets us. Most traffic turns left here.
