The B1227 is one of the few non-pedestrianised roads in York city centre. Starting from a point close to York railway station and first running along Rougier Street, it ends by Clifford's Tower, having crossed the river by means of the Ouse Bridge (which was once part of the original B1225).
The original route of the B1227
The designation B1227 had originally been given to the route between the A19 and the A64 via Cemetery Road, Foss Islands Road, and St Maurice's Road. This was cut short when the A1036 York Inner Ring Road was put together, and later disappeared altogether into that number.
