|Route outline (key)|
The B1224 is a west to east route connecting the town of Wetherby to the city of York.
It originally diverged from Wetherby's North Road (which was then the A1) to follow – naturally enough – York Road, passing along the northern side of Wetherby racecourse. Subsequent changes to the layout of routes in the area have meant that the western terminus of the B1224 is now a junction at the boundary between the metropolitan borough of Leeds and the county of North Yorkshire on the B6164 Wetherby to Knaresborough road immediately south of Kirk Deighton. From here the road now follows a new 2.6 km alignment – with connections to the A168 and the A1(M) (junction 46) – before rejoining its old route at a roundabout at the northeastern corner of the racecourse.
