The B5235 is a largely urban B-road in south Lancashire.

The B5235 starts at a traffic-light-controlled junction with the B5215 (pre-bypass A579) at Howe Bridge, outside the sports centre. The road heads uphill in a north-westerly direction, meeting the current route of the A579 at another set of traffic lights soon afterwards. From there, the road continues its uphill climb, past the Howe Bridge cemetery and up to the A577 at a staggered junction (yet again traffic-light-controlled).

Daisy Hill station

From the A577, the road heads northwards, with the speed limit increasing to 40mph as the countryside opens out. After about a mile, the road reaches the Wigan/Bolton boundary, where the speed limit drops back to 30mph. The B5235 then meets a small roundabout for local traffic heading into Daisy Hill village before climbing again, but this time to cross over Daisy Hill railway station, before meeting a new set of traffic lights for a local estate. The road now quickly meets the A58 at a fairly large signal controlled T-Junction.

After a short multiplex west along the A58, the B5235 resumes again, heading through Westhoughton town centre and past the town's high school, where it winds and climbs its way up to the A6 at Wingates.

Originally the B5235 ended on the then-A5069 Park Road in Westhoughton with the remainder of the route being part of the A58. In the 1970s that road was rerouted along the A5069 to meet the new M61 and so the B5235 took over its old route through Westhoughton. The current road layout dates to the 1980s when a short relief road was built on the A58.
