Route

Northern Perimeter Road

The B5207 runs along the northern edge of the Netherton area of Bootle.

The route starts by Copy Lane police station at a light-controlled crossroads on the A5036 some 600 m south-west of Switch Island, opposite the western terminus of the B5194. Within 100 m the road swings right to leave Copy Lane, and for the next 2.3 km the B5207 is known as the Northern Perimeter Road, which runs northeasterly for a short way before turning to continue generally westwards. The settlement we are going round is Netherton, with its extensive housing estates lying to our left, while most of the right-hand side of the road is open fields.

After crossing the B5422 at traffic lights the route continues as the rural Lydiate Lane, which brings us, within a kilometre, into the village of Thornton, where the B5207 ends at traffic lights on the A565.

History

This road was originally the western end of the B5194 but was later upgraded and seems to have become the A5276 before being renumbered as the A5207, even though that number was already in use slightly further east.

In August 2015 the parallel A5758 opened further north and this road was downgraded again. The tradition of applying a duplicate number has been preserved: there is another B5207, also further east, near Ashton in Makerfield.
