Route outline (key)
B5283 Hallthwaites - Whicham
Heading west

The B5283 was a short B-road in south Cumberland, linking the A595 with itself either side of Millom.

The road started in Hallthwaites and headed west, descending steeply into the valley of the Whicham Beck. It followed the valley for a short distance before climbing out the other side, then descending again into the next valley. After contouring for another couple of miles the road reached Whicham itself, where it ended.

Presumably the terrain of the B5283 inspired the original routing of the A595 via Millom. However, after World War II the A-road was rerouted along the more direct route of the B5283, making that number redundant. The road via Millom retained Class I status, becoming the A5093.
