|Route outline (key)|
The B5260 is a rural B-road on the Fylde.
The road starts at Five Lane Ends in Little Singleton, where it meets the A585 and A586. This is a traffic-light-controlled junction where a fifth arm seems to have been grafted in to a crossroads, thus making the junction rather confusing. Our road heads south, initially along the original route of the A585, into Singleton itself, where it meets the B5266 at a mini-roundabout on the nearside of the village and then the B5269 on the far side. That road takes away the old A585, making this the original northern end of the B5260.
The road continues south across the flat terrain of the Fylde. It passes the Weeton Army Barracks (with its 15mph signs at the entrance) before reaching Weeton village. The road heads west along the main street where it has to TOTSO left. It goes under the M55 then over the railway line to Blackpool North at a narrow bridge before going through the village of Great Plumpton.
After crossing the A583 at traffic lights the B5260 reaches Wrea Green. It goes over the railway to Blackpool South before ending soon afterwards on the village green at a raised mini-roundabout on the B5259.
