|Route outline (key)|
The road from Cockermouth to Maryport in west Cumberland was originally given the number B5299. Starting on the A595 in Papcastle, then a completely separate village, the road headed northwestwards, avoiding the centres of just about all the settlements it passed through. After going through Netherton it crossed the railway line and River Ellen to end on the A596 on the eastern side of Maryport.
The B5299 was renumbered as the western extension of the A594 in the 1920s and, with the exception of a couple of upgrades, is now the entire length of that road.
