|Route outline (key)|
In the 1922 Road Lists, the A1061 was a short road of about a third of a mile connecting the A189 and A192 near Cramlington. Although part of it is now buried under the A189, the original line of the road can still be seen as Hastings Terrace in Shankhouse and then the farm track one field to the south of the current route of the A1061.
The original route of the A1061 was bypassed in the 1950s by the current route, although of course the GSJ with the A189 is not original. Later, the A1061 was extended east along some of what was the B1327, before bypassing New Delaval to the south and ending on the A193 near the promenade.
