The B5289 (former B5293) alongside Crummock Water

The road along Lorton Vale past Crummock Water was unclassified in 1922; however, it had gained Class II status by the mid-1920s. The road was given a number reused from nearby, becoming the B5293.

The road started on the B5292 to the north of Low Lorton before heading south along the valley past Crummock Water into Buttermere Village. After crossing the Mill Beck it ended by the church at the fork in the road.

The B5293 ceased to exist in 1935. The B5289 was extended west from Borrowdale over the Honister Pass and took over the entire length of the road. It remains this number.
