Orford Lane

The B5210 in Warrington town centre is the short remainder of what was once a much longer cross-town link.

In 1922 the route started on the A57 Liverpool Road and headed east along Priestley Street. This section has since been upgraded as a rerouting of the A57.

The B5210 then continued east along Froghall Lane, immediately passing under the Liverpool to Warrington railway line. Froghall Lane becomes Tanners Lane, at the end of which a left turn at traffic lights and a right turn at the immediately following roundabout took the route via Pinners Brow to a signalized crossroads junction with the A49 Lythgoes Lane. All of this section is now unclassified although it is shown as the B5210 on some maps.

On the far side of the aforementioned junction is Orford Lane, almost all of which now constitutes the present route of the B5210. Just before it ends, a third of a mile later, however, the A574 comes in from the left along Longford Street to continue the forward route.

Originally the B5210 continued eastward along Marsh House Lane, passing underneath the railway line once more, and ending on what had been the original line of the A574 on Padgate Lane.
