|Route outline (key)|
The B5095 is a road of two halves, either side of Cheadle in northeast Cheshire.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout on the A5149 to the northwest of Bramhall. It heads west along Church Road to another mini-roundabout before turning north along Hulme Hall Road. After going under the Crewe to Stockport railway line it meets the A5149 again at a set of traffic lights where the A-road TOTSOs to become the road ahead.
The B5095 reappears nearly two miles further north, at a set of traffic lights on the A560 Cheadle High Street. It continues north along Manchester Road, going over the M60 and River Mersey before ending at a set of traffic lights on the A34 Kingsway in East Didsbury.
As may be expected, the B5095 was originally much longer and has been largely replaced by an A-road.
With the construction of the A34 Cheadle bypass in the 1960s the B5095 was extended north along the pre-bypass route via what became a short multiplex along the A560 in Cheadle itself, to end at the northern end of the bypass in East Didsbury. However, this form of the road did not last long.
Soon afterwards the whole of the route between Bramhall and Cheadle was upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A5149, except for a short section in Cheadle Hulme as the A-road took a different line. This has given the B5095 its current route as two non-connected roads.
