|Route outline (key)|
The B5355 is a short road which runs through the centre of Winsford, Cheshire. Owing to the short length of the road its history is not fully known. It is assumed that the number came to the area in the late 1920s but the road is first identified on the 1938 OS 1:10560 sheet. Only the central section of the present B5355 has had that number since classification; the remainder is on the original lines of the A54 and A5018, becoming extensions of the B5355 when the bypasses were built.
The road starts at a roundabout on the A54 just west of the station on the West Coast Main Line and heads west along the residential Station Road. Soon there's an easy-to-miss TOTSO right onto Crook Lane, which is limited to light traffic and has speed humps to boot.
Continuing through the suburb of Wharton we shortly reach a crossroads and TOTSO right onto Wharton Road; as a former Class I road we lose the restrictions. The road continues through post-war housing and soon ends at a roundabout on the A5018.
