|Route outline (key)|
The A1039 is a short route in east Yorkshire, but you never have a cause to use all of it at once. It is non-primary for all its length.
The road begins at a roundabout with the A64 east of Staxton. We head east and pass some houses each side in a 40mph zone before entering the village of Flixton where we drop to 30mph. We then skirt the edge of Folkton, the main village being off to the left, after which we rise to NSL and onto a fast section for a couple of miles. We then slow to 30 again for the village of Muston. There are a couple of tight bends through the village and we then meet the A165 at a T-junction. We TOTSO right and multiplex with the A165 but only until the next roundabout a quarter of a mile away.
We now head left to continue on the A1039 into Filey. The road is wide here with a 40mph limit, which drops to 30mph as we get closer to the town centre. The road narrows and we turn left again; the signs now are for Scarborough. We then arrive at another mini-roundabout. We continue straight on - but all traffic that has come this far from the A64 should turn off if it hasn't already as by now we're heading back out of Filey back towards the A165. We head left at another roundabout and then the road is much the same as when we entered Filey, wide and with a 30mph limit rising to 40mph as we get further away from the town. We then enter NSL and are back on a rural road until we hit the A165 again at a roundabout about a mile further on.
