|Route outline (key)|
The A1062 is a largely rural A-road in the Norfolk Broads. Originally unclassified, the road was soon numbered as part of the B1354. The A1062 came into being in the 1960s.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout in Hoveton, where it meets the A1151. It heads east through the village and soon enters open country as it passes to the north of the Hoveton Marshes and nearby Broads. After passing through Upper Street, Hoveton Little Broad is just visible to the right, after which the road runs through Horning.
Another section of open fields follows, including a second hamlet called Upper Street, before the road returns to the marshes and crosses the River Ant at Ludham Bridge. The road detours slightly northwards before running through Ludham itself.
A mile or so further on the road reaches Potter Heigham. The unclassified road on the left just before the village is the old A149 marking the original eastern end of the A1062. Now, however, the road continues ahead on the former A149 into the village then leaves it as it TOTSOs left onto Station Road. The present A149 has been built on the route of an old railway line and the A1062 now ends on that road where there once was a level crossing, with the station just to the right.
