Route

Looking SW on the A1064 near Billockby

The A1064 is part of an alternative route through the Norfolk Broads from Acle to the coast, avoiding the A47 (although until 1935 it was the A47). It leaves the A47 Acle Bypass at a roundabout, crosses the River Bure at Acle Bridge, passes over Filby Broad, and ends on the A149 at the roundabout near the Caister-on-Sea bypass.

History

The original route of the A1064

The A1064 originally ran along Beach Road in Caister. It is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Branch at Caister-next-Yarmouth (the old name for Caister-on-Sea), though it is a late addition to the list (the other A106x roads are in Northumberland), presumably because it formed an important link from the High Street (then part of the A47) to the (now gone) railway station and the lifeboat station. It ran along Beach Road as far as the railway line (Manor Road is on that route now).

The extension to Acle occurred in 1935, when the A47 was diverted from going via Filby to along the Acle Straight instead. Since then, the construction of the bypass and realignment of the A149 has resulting in all roads in Caister becoming downgraded. That road has taken on some of the former eastern section of the A1064.
