|Route outline (key)|
The A1161 was a short-lived A-road in west Essex.
The road started on the A122 (now A414) on the eastern edge of North Weald Bassett. The road headed southwest through the village and skirted the southern edge of the airfield before going under the M11. It went through The Lower Forest, a detached part of Epping Forest, before reaching Epping itself, where it ended on the A11 (now B1393).
The A1161 was the original line of the A122 east of the A11. Following construction of the new M11 in the 1970s that road was diverted north along previously unclassified roads to meet the motorway at what is now J7. The old road vacated was given the A1161 number. Shortly afterwards, the A11 was deemed superfluous and downgraded to Class II status, taking the A1161 with it; it was renumbered as an eastern extension of the B181.
