B5268 Little Carleton – Fleetwood
Fleetwood Road

The B5268 is a largely urban B-road on the Fylde.

The route starts at traffic lights on the A586 at Little Carleton, on the edge of Blackpool, and heads northeast along Blackpool Old Road. As might be expected from the road name, this was the original line of the A586 before the current route was built in the late 1920s.

After running along the boundary of Blackpool Borough for a short distance the road TOTSOs left, et the point that was its original southern end. It then crosses the Blackpool North railway line at a level crossing before the road zigzags through the village of Carleton. It meets the B5267 at traffic lights in the village centre.

The road continues north along Fleetwood Road. There is a short semi-rural section before a roundabout is reached on the A585, on the far side of which the road enters Thornton. It crosses the B5412 at a traffic-light-controlled staggered crossroads before passing Marsh Mill, a working windmill which looks quite out-of-place in the suburbs where it now finds itself.

After a sharp bend to the right the road reaches the B5439. This is the original line of the A585 and so this junction marks the original northern end of the B5268. Today, however, our road carries on and even has priority through the junction. It continues north along the pre-bypass route of the A585 and soon reaches the edge of town. There is a roundabout serving a new industrial development and afterwards the road passes a holiday camp.

After passing a junction on the left turn with a road that was formerly part of the B5409 but is now unclassified and the entrance to a caravan park on our right, the route ends at a roundabout on the current line of the A585 on the southern edge of Fleetwood.
