The A5086 (former B5293) near Pardshaw

The B5293 was a long cross-country road in west Cumberland.

The road started on the B5292 in the centre of Cockermouth and headed southwest. It kept to the edge of the mountains, which explains why the route of the B5293 is now almost entirely outside the Lake District National Park. Although the northern section the road was almost wholly rural the B5293 did pass through some larger settlements further south, such as Frizington and Cleator. The southern end of the road was on the A595 on the northern edge of Egremont.

The road was obviously important from the beginning as it was upgraded to Class I status in the mid-1920s. It became the A5086, which it remains.
