B5245 Link in Southport
Southport Promenade

The B5245 is a short link road through Southport town centre.

The route starts at a LILO junction on the A565, from where it heads briefly northwestwards along Coronation Walk before reaching a T-junction and turning right to run along the Promenade – so called even though the sea is half a mile away (and even further at low tide) on the far side of the Marine Lake.

After passing the entrance to the pier the B5245 meets Marine Parade at traffic lights; this road crosses the Marine Lake at an eye-catching bridge. Presently our road runs along the side of the Lake for a short distance before TOTSOing right at a mini-roundabout and heading back inland along Leicester Street.

We meet the A565 again, at a roundabout junction, and this is the point where the B5245 originally started in 1922, the section we have been following so far not having been added much before 1945. We continue from the far side of the roundabout along more-or-less eastwards along Manchester Road, which curves gently round from southeast to northeastward through a residential district of the town before our route comes to its terminus at traffic lights on the A5267 which TOTSOs here in both directions.

An amended OpenStreetMap trace for this route awaits uploading to the SABRE Wiki.
