B5089 Macclesfield - Whaley Bridge
The B5470 (former B5089) in Rainow

The B5089 was a rural B-road, mostly in east Cheshire.

The road started on the A5024 in Macclesfield town centre and headed northeast along Commercial Road before leaving town. It crossed the Macclesfield Canal then continued up into the hills.

The B5089 went around a few sharp corners and passed through Rainow and Kettleshulme before descending into the Goyt Valley. It ended in Horwich End, to the south of Whaley Bridge, at a crossroads. Ahead was the A625 and the other two directions were numbered A6.

In the 1960s the A6 was rerouted between Buxton and Horwich End, with its original route becoming the A5002. For some reason that road was then extended west along the entire route of the B5089, so that the A5002 became an L-shaped road.

The ex-B5089 has since been returned to Class II status but has not regained its original number. It is now part of the B5470, although the western end now has a new route in Macclesfield.
