The former B5279 (now A5084) at Lowick Bridge

The B5279 was a rural road in north Lancashire.

The road started on the A590 on the coast in Greenodd and headed north along the valley of the River Crake. It met the B5280 in Lowick Green before reaching the edge of Coniston Water. It ran alongside the lake for over a mile before turning away to end on the A593 in the centre of Torver.

The B5279 did not last long: it was quickly upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A5084 in the mid-1920s. After World War II the B5280 was also upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A5092, and this number took over the southern section of the ex-B5279.
