The B5294 is a short link road in west Cumberland.
The road starts on the B5295 in the Whinney Hill area of Cleator Moor and heads northeast out of town along Bowthorn Road. Although the foothills of the Lake District can be seen in the distance the B5294 is relatively flat and does not get that far. The road does climb slightly, however, and goes through a wood close to the its summit. It then descends into Frizington, where it passes the churchyard and ends at a T-junction on the A5086 (former B5293).
