|Route outline (key)|
The former B5364 ran from the B581 at the western end of Elmesthorpe along Wilkinson Lane / Station Road to the A47 in the centre of Earl Shilton. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its number by the early 1930s.
Completion in 2009 of the bypass which now carries the A47 around the southern and eastern sides of Earl Shilton (across the route of the B5364) led to declassification of the B-road, its first 300 m becoming a cul-de-sac ending at the bypass. The section north of the bypass, however – now starting from a signal-controlled junction on the new route of the A47 – continues to join Earl Shilton to the rest of the world.
