|Route outline (key)|
The B5153 is a largely rural B-road in northern Cheshire.
The road starts at a gyratory by on the A559 (former A556) by Greenbank station to the west of Northwich town centre. From here it heads west along the bizarrely named Beach Road, which takes us to Hartfordbeach (which is some miles inland).
After a short rural section the B5153 enters the next village, Weaverham. After going along the High Street it reaches a T-junction on the original route of the A49 through the village. That road now bypasses Weaverham but there is debate as to what has replaced it. According to signs the whole thing is the B5144 but maps show the road to the right as B5142 instead. Both numbers are duplicates.
After crossing the ex-A49 at a staggered crossroads our road continues west to cross a bridge over the A49 bypass. A short distance further on the road bends sharply left to cross a bridge over the West Coast Main Line at Acton Bridge station. The road then continues through rural Cheshire. It goes through the small village of Crowton before reaching the larger village of Kingsley. Although the road passes to the north of the village centre it does pass the church and remains built up for over half a mile, until a T-junction on the B5152 is met and the B5153 ends.
