Common End

The B5306 runs along the pre-bypass A595 from Lillyhall to Parton, between Whitehaven and Workington in west Cumberland. It gained its number in the late 2000s.

From a roundabout at the northeastern end of the A595 bypass, which is also the southern end of the A597, the road heads southwest through Distington, Common End and Howgate, returning to the A595 at the other end of the bypass.

Given that the road must have lost 80 per cent of its traffic and its raison d'être as a through route when it was bypassed and detrunked it may seem odd that the road is still classified - but it must still be important enough to have Class II status.
