The B5250 is a semi-rural B-road in south Lancashire.
The road starts on the A5209 (former B5239) immediately to the west of the roundabout at M6 J27. B5250 traffic wishing to turn right into the A5209 must instead turn left and do a full circuit of the roundabout. From here our road heads north and quickly crosses the original (pre-motorway) line of the B5239. The road continues parallel to the motorway for a short distance before the roads diverge and the B5250 goes through the village of Hunger Hill.
This stretch of road contains a number of small villages with short stretches lined by fields between them. This means that, although the road is essentially rural, the speed limit never gets above 40. Eventually the village of Eccleston is reached – the largest place on the road. The River Yarrow is crossed on the far side of the village, after which there is the usual short rural stretch before the road reaches Newtown in the village of Ulnes Walton. It ends there at a T-junction on the A581.
