B5087 Macclesfield - Alderley Edge
The B5087 at Whirley Grove, heading north-west out of Macclesfield towards Alderley Edge

The B5087 is a short B-road in east Cheshire.

The route starts at a roundabout on the A537 Cumberland Street relief road in Macclesfield, although originally it started closer to the centre of town at the western end of Chestergate. It heads northwest along Prestbury Road - although it does not actually go to Prestbury.

After leaving town the B5087 continues northwestwards, across undulating terrain with few buildings lining the road, before skirting the Hare Hill estate, partly owned by the National Trust. A short distance further on, the road enters more National Trust land, at Alderley Edge. It remains fairly flat as it passes through the wood before descending into town, although the steepest gradients are elsewhere on the Edge.

Shortly afterwards the B5087 reaches a T-junction at the southern end of Alderley Edge town centre. Originally it ended here on the A34. However, that road now bypasses the town to the west so the B5087 TOTSOs right and follows the pre-bypass A34 along the main street. After crossing the Crewe to Manchester railway line by the station the road ends on the B5359 (former A535) which continues along the pre-bypass route of the A34 to the end of the bypass.
