The B5181 is a short link road in Macclesfield.

Starting at a roundabout junction on the A537 north of the town centre, where Hibel Road becomes Cumberland Street, the route heads south as Churchill Way – a new thoroughfare opened (as a section of the A523) sometime after 1976 and designed to serve as an inner relief road taking north-south traffic away from the old Jordangate and Mill Street route through the middle of Macclesfield. Having skirted the west side of the town centre, the B5181 curves round towards the south-east to end at another roundabout, on the A536 Park Street.

The route was downgraded to Class II when the A523 was shifted once again, this time to run east of the town centre, along a new route known as The Silk Road. Some maps claim the B5181 still has Class I status, as part of the A538, but Cheshire East Council do give the road its Class II number.
