Heading east

The B5255 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Link at Farington joining B5254 and A49.

The road started on the B5254 adjacent to Leyland railway station and headed east along Moss Lane for just over half a mile before ending on the A49 on the edge of Clayton-le-Woods.

The road was severed with the building of the M6 in the 1960s and presumably lost its number at this time. The right of way has been retained with the construction of a pedestrian tunnel under the motorway but vehicular traffic has to use the parallel B5256, which was built at the same time as the M6.
