|This article is about the original A1018 in north east Essex.
For the current A1018 near Sunderland, see A1018
The A1018 was originally assigned to a short link road on the southern Stour estuary in north east Essex. It branched from what was the A135 to the north, and followed the coastline through Manningtree before ending on the A137.
In 1935, it became a spur of the A137, while the A135 was renumbered as an extension of the A604, and so this incarnation of the A1018 bit the dust. Later on, the A604 was rerouted further south, resulting in the older road, including this spur, being downgraded to the B1352, which it remains.
