The B5393 is a semi-rural B-road in west Cheshire. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the early 1930s.
The road starts on the A54 between Tarvin and Kelsall and heads north, soon reaching Ashton Hayes. After running through the village centre we pass the school and the church and then descend across the fields to cross a stream and reach Mouldsworth. Again there's a church on the edge of the village, after which we climb to go over the Mid-Cheshire Line above Mouldsworth station.
Mouldsworth is somewhat spread out so it takes some time before the road can be classed as rural once more. We run along the side of a ridge, with views to the left, then continue on into Alvanley. After passing the church a road bears off left to Helsby. We bear right and go over the top of the ridge and then descend, with the wooded Frodsham Hill visible ahead. After reaching the gap between Helsby and Frodsham Hills we bear left to remain low, continuing on to end at a T-junction on the A56 on the western edge of Frodsham.
