A now abandoned section of Ferry Street in Jarrow

In 1922 the number A1056 was allocated to a route in Jarrow, northern County Durham.

Starting on the then A185 Jarrow High Street, it headed north through the village along Monkton Road and Grange Road. After going up Ferry Street it ended at the entrance to the docks, where a ferry took vehicles across the River Tyne to the A187 at Howdon.

Completion of the first Tyne Tunnel in 1967 made the ferry - and the A1056 with it - redundant. Later work done on Jarrow's road network has destroyed part of the route of the A1056: a car park has been built on top of Monkton Road, and what remains of the former A-road is today unclassified and would be completely unrecognisable to people who knew Jarrow in its heyday.
