|Route outline (key)|
The B5295 is a short B-road in west Cumberland.
Originally the road started on the A595 in the centre of Hensingham (now part of the Whitehaven urban area). However, when the bypass was built the B5295 took over the entire pre-bypass route so the road now starts at both ends of the bypass (at traffic lights at the northern end; at a roundabout at the southern). The two roads join at a mini-roundabout in the centre of Hensingham and the B5295 heads east from the point which is its original western end.
The B5295 goes along Main Street, Hensingham, to turn right at the next mini-roundabout and enter open country. It then heads southeastwards, descending as it does so, to Keekle, where it crosses the River Keekle. It then enters Cleator Moor and runs lengthways through the town. The B5294 is soon met before the road goes along the High Street to end on the far side of town at a T-junction on the A5086 (former B5293).
