The now-unclassified former B5359 Stanger Street

The B5359 was a short loop off the A594 in Keswick town centre. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.

Owing to the short length of the road, its route is not immediately obvious; for example, it cannot be ascertained from the map on the right. Whereas the obvious route would be for the road to start where the A594 turned from Penrith Road onto Station Street and then follow Victoria Street and Bank Street to return to the A-road on Main Street, the OS 7th Series map disagrees. According to that map, after Victoria Street, the B5359 turned onto the narrow Brewery Lane before following back alleys to reach Stanger Street; this was followed back to Main Street.

Whilst the c1938 OS 1:2500 map labels the route as the B5358, it shows the route as being Victoria Street - Brewery Lane - Bell Close - Bank Street, a slightly more plausible line than the alleys described above. The B5359 no longer exists. If it did follow the back alleys that fact is not surprising. Victoria Street and Bank Street are now part of the A5271, having been the A594 in the late 1960s.
