The B5161 is a short urban B-road in south Altrincham.
It starts at an unsigned junction on the A56 in the corner of Bowgreen and heads east along Bow Green Road as a wide S1 then widens as it becomes residential. It then heads north, then east again before reaching a T-junction. The road to the left is the B5160 and the B5161 TOTSOs right.
After meeting the B5162 the road turns more northerly and skirts the edge of Hale. It meets the B5163 (and two unclassified roads) at a five-way junction controlled by traffic lights. The B5161 ends a short distance further north at a mini-roundabout on the A538 on the southern edge of Altrincham.
