B5290 Keswick - Bothel

The A591 (former B5290) at High Side

The B5290 number was originally allocated to the road between Keswick and Bothel in Cumberland.

The road appears to have been rapidly upgraded to an extension to the A591 by 1927-28, as this change is shown on the relevant MoT Map, with the B5290 number shown as being used in Manchester by the 1932 edition of the OS Ten Mile Road Map.

The southern end of the road (within the Keswick bypass) is now part of the A5271 and the rest remains the A591.
