|Route outline (key)|
The B5277 is a largely rural B-road mostly in north Lancashire.
It starts at the Meathop Roundabout on the A590 just over the border in Westmorland. This is actually the first roundabout on the A590 (although not the first at-grade interchange) for some distance in both directions.
The route heads west along the pre-bypass A590 and soon crosses the River Winster into Lancashire. It continues parallel to the new road into the village of Lindale, where it reaches a mini-roundabout. The ex-A590 continues along the unclassified road ahead whilst the B5277 turns left at what is its original northern end.
Heading south, the road soon leaves the Lake District National Park and then skirts the edge of a coastal plain before bending right and running parallel to the Furness Line into Grange-over-Sands. It passes the station before reaching a mini-roundabout where it turns left (the road to the right is the B5271).
The B5277 continues through the town, separated from the coastal marshes by the railway line. It passes to the north of Kents Bank before detouring through Allithwaite to avoid the more direct but steep and narrow Jack Hill. It then continues west along Allithwaite Road into Flookburgh.
The route crosses over the railway line it has followed for most of its itinerary before running along Market Street to end in the Market Square. There is a bend to the right here into Station Road but this is the beginning of the B5278.
