C500 Blue House Lane - Springwell
This article is about the Class III road numbered C500 maintained by Sunderland Council.
For other roads numbered C500, see C500

The C500 is a short route in the north-western corner of the new town of Washington, linking it with the village of Springwell. The road starts at a roundabout on the A1290, heading west along Blue House Lane and, for a short time, taking over the route of the former B1289. However, where that road turned south, the C500 bends around to the north onto Donvale Road, parallel to the A194(M) and forming the perimeter of the residential area of Donwell. Climbing uphill, a roundabout is reached where the C500 turns left and passes over the motorway without a junction.

Peareth Hall Road, Springwell Village

Almost immediately the road enters Springwell village where, in contrast to Washington, the road network is unchanged from the early 20th century. The route is semi-rural here, a mix of large houses set back from the road and open fields, particularly on the left. After passing numerous attractive stone terraces, it climbs uphill towards the centre of the village where it ends on the B1288.
