|Route outline (key)|
The A1101 runs through the heart of the Cambridgeshire Fenlands, although most of it is not a primary route due to its numerous twists and turns.
It starts just outside Long Sutton on the A17 and heads south towards Wisbech. It runs through the town, meeting the A47 bypass at the other side, and turns southeast to Outwell. The A1122 takes up the primary route to Downham Market, while the A1101 heads through the Hundred Foot Drain, and out the other side to Littleport, where it briefly multiplexes with the A10.
After crossing the railway and leaving the A10, it runs southeast through slightly less flat countryside, past RAF Mildenhall, to meet the A11 and A1065 at the Fiveways Roundabout in Barton Mills. There's then a run through woodland southeast towards Bury St Edmunds, where it ends on the A143 near that road's junction with the A14.
On 1st April, 1935, the A1101 was further extended over the former A150 to Long Sutton, as it was by this time recognised as an important continuous cross country route.
