|Route outline (key)|
The A1041 was a rural A-road in east Yorkshire.
The road started on the A161 on the edge of Goole. The road then headed north and soon crossed the Boothferry Bridge over the River Ouse before running onto the Howden bypass. It passed the town to the east and then crossed the A63 at the far corner.
The road continued northeastwards. Despite the fact that the terrain in this part of the East Riding is completely flat and that the road went through no places of any size, the road did have a number of bends to begin with. However, after crossing the River Foulness (on a bridge that has since been bypassed) the road became dead-straight for a couple of miles, only bending to the left at Moor End. The road then skirted the edge of Holme-upon-Spalding-Moor before ending to the east of the village centre on the A163.
This second incarnation of the A1041 was presumably created around 1929 to coincide with the opening of the Boothferry Bridge. It is an early example of a recycled number.
The road was an upgrade to Class I of the B1228 from Goole - Howden (although the new A1041 followed the new Howden bypass rather than the old road through the town) and then the B1229 as far as Holme-upon-Spalding-Moor.
