The C514 is a short urban route in Sunderland. It begins at the Priestman Roundabout and heads south along Thornhill Crescent. It bends around to the right before a sharp left turn onto Tunstall Road, past St Anthony's Girls' School and then arriving at an oddly-shaped roundabout with no deflections upon entry and very sharp deflections upon exit. The C514 carries straight on here through the leafy residential area of Ashbrooke, past large terraced houses and entrances to private roads, before passing St Aidan's School (the boys' equivalent of St Anthony's) and reaching a roundabout on Queen Alexandra Road. This was at one time the B1405, but has since been downgraded and is now the C512.

The C514 carries on along Tunstall Road, climbing steeply as it gets further from the city centre. This section is known locally as Strawberry Bank. After a while the road levels out again and comes to a roundabout where it terminates on the B1405.
