One of the contenders for "least likely classified road", the B5315 connects Granville Square, at the west end of Stone High Street, with Stone railway station, which was built on the edge of town as it served a railway junction. The road number does not appear on signs and some maps claim the road to be a disembodied section of the B5027. The road, which has the name Station Road throughout its entire length, was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s as one of many classified roads existing purely to serve a railway station.
The B5315 starts on the A520 on the Stone one-way system in Granville Square, adjacent to the town's war memorial. The first third of the road is also one way, in the direction we are travelling. Much of the right hand side of this section is taken up by a Wetherspoons pub.
We soon reach a T-junction adjacent to the Church of the Immaculate Conception & St Dominic, where Station Road becomes two way. Traffic heading into town takes the other exit at the junction, heading along Margaret St to meet the B5027.
After the junction, the road becomes more suburban than town-centre. We pass St Dominic's School, which takes some time, and soon afterwards reach a warning sign of a level crossing ahead. The B5315 ends at the crossroads just before the level crossing. None of the other roads here are classified. The station approach is to the left.
