|Route outline (key)|
From a roundabout on the A6004, Epinal Way, where it is signposted 'Town centre', the road runs northeasterly for 1.2 km along Forest Road, then Woodgate, before turning right onto Leicester Road (the former A6) to end at traffic lights on that road's present route.
The second half of this route is one-way northeastbound, however. In the southwesterly direction the road starts from the same set of traffic lights then follows Southfield Road and Royland Road before bearing right into Park Road to rejoin Forest Road.
The B5350 was first classified in the late 1920s but was originally much longer before being cut back when many of the roads in Charnwood were declassified around 2000.
Originally the B5350 started on the B591 to the northeast of Copt Oak. It headed northeast via Nanpantan to reach Loughborough and its present route. Interestingly, the road did not follow either of the present eastern ends through the town centre but rather continued along Ward's End to end in the Market Place on the A6.
The western end of the original B5350 is now part of a rerouted B591, whilst the majority is now unclassified, just leaving the remnant above.
