|Route outline (key)|
The B5396 was a short link road in west Leicestershire. It was short-lived, coming into existence in the 1950s then being declassified again when the A42 was built along a similar line in the 1980s.
The road started on the eastern side of Willesley on the then-A453 and headed east along Measham Road to reach Packington. It skirted the southern side of the village by following Heather Lane to reach the B5326 Normanton Road.
There was a multiplex to the left for about a quarter of a mile before the B5396 bore right at a triangular junction onto Coleorton Lane. This was followed northeastwards for a short distance before the end of the road at a crossroads on the original line of the A50. Coleorton itself was some distance ahead but the road leading there has always been unclassified.
