B5307 Abbeytown - Carlisle

The B5307 is a long cross-country route in northern Cumberland. It is also the highest-numbered Class II road in the 5 zone in the 1922 Road Lists.

The road starts on the B5302 in the centre of the village of Abbeytown and heads northeast. It soon leaves town before crossing the River Waver, which looks more like a drainage channel than a river, and then continuing northeast across the coastal marshes. The road is very winding despite the fact the terrain is so flat.

Presently the road reaches the linear village of Newton Arlosh and runs along the entire length of the main (and only) street. Over a mile further on the road reaches a T-junction in Angerton. The road to the left reaches the Solway coast at Bowness but the B5307 TOTSOs right and moves seamlessly into Kirkbride. It crosses a bridge over the long-gone Carlisle to Silloth railway line before reaching another TOTSO where it turns left.

The B5307 crosses the River Wampool (drainage ditch?) before continuing east. The road is now straighter than before, which is noteworthy as the terrain is not quite so flat. The road bends right to go through Finglandrigg Wood before passing through a couple of small villages. The A689 Carlisle western bypass is now reached at a roundabout. According to signs, turn left for Hexham and right for Workington.

The B5307 continues ahead, signposted City centre, and enters the suburbs almost immediately. It runs along Moorhouse Road through the largely residential Belle Vue and Newtown suburbs before ending at a roundabout on the A595 not far from the city centre. The importance of Carlisle can be seen by the signage here, whereby traffic should turn left for the NORTH and EAST, or right for the WEST.
