|Route outline (key)|
The B5192 follows the pre-bypass road through the Lancashire twin towns of Kirkham and Wesham. Originally the north-south section was numbered A585 and the east-west section A583. However, the latter was moved onto a bypass in the 1930s and the whole route became part of the A585. The B5192 came into existence when the route of that road was moved onto a second bypass in the 1980s.
The route starts at a roundabout at the northern end of the A585 western bypass and heads south, quickly entering Wesham. We bear left at a mini-roundabout by the war memorial then follow Station Road to go over the Preston to Blackpool railway line by Kirkham and Wesham station.
After descending we reach traffic lights in the centre of Kirkham, marking the original junction between the A583 and A585. Here we bear left onto Poulton Street and pass the shops before the road becomes residential in character once again. After winding through the suburb of Dowbridge the B5192 re-enters open country and ends at a T-junction on the A583.
