B583 Link in Leicester
Fosse Road North, Leicester

The B583 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as a loop at Leicester. It bypassed the city centre to the west.

It started on the A46 (present A5460) Narborough Road to the south of the city centre. Originally it headed west along Imperial Avenue before going north along Fosse Road. Later most of the southern part of the route was shifted further west, to run along Fullhurst Avenue, Woodville Road and Henley Road before reaching Fosse Road North.

The B583 continued north to cross the A50 before following Blackbird Road to Abbey Lane. It then headed north along Abbey Lane to end on the A6 Loughborough Road.

In the 1960s the entire road was upgraded to Class I status, becoming first of all the A5125 and then the A46. When that road was diverted onto a bypass the ex-B583 was declassified, although the northernmost section is now part of the A6 and the section immediately north of the A50 is the B5327.
