B5157 Latchford - Thelwall
Thelwall

The B5157 is a short B-road to the east of Warrington town centre. It is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Link at Thelwall joining A50 and A56; the route is unchanged since then.

The road starts at traffic lights on the A50 in Latchford, immediately to the south of the Knutsford Road swing bridge over the Manchester Ship Canal. It heads east along Thelwall New Road, parallel to the canal which is clearly visible from the road.

A disused railway bridge crosses the B5157 and canal before the road reaches the Latchford Locks. Shortly afterwards it turns away from the canal to pass through Thelwall. The road zigzags in the centre of the village to pass a recreation ground before continuing east along Lymm Road. After entering open country the road ends at a T-junction on the A56, with the M6 Thelwall Viaduct just visible ahead.
