|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at a roundabout where it meets the A1079 and A1033 from different parts of Hull city centre. The former bears west onto the Beverley bypass and the A1174 heads north along its former route. It passes through Dunswell before crossing a fen drain to run through Woodmansey. The edge of Beverley is reached, where it meets the A164.
The next part is a useless multiplex with the A164. Just to the north is where the former B1230 bears off left into the town centre; this was the old A1079 and we continue north to form an eastern bypass, along the original A1174, built in the 1970's. The road skirts the edge of town, with buildings on both sides of the road. At the second roundabout the A1035 and B1230 are met.
The A1174 was initially just the eastern bypass: the part between the A1035 and the A1079. When the A1079 Beverley western bypass was built in 1980, the A1035 was extended west to meet the new A1079, the B1230 was extended east to meet the A1174, the part between the town centre and B1230 became declassified and the rest of the former A1079 became the A1174. A new road between the northern A1174 terminus and the A164 was built in the 1990s and was believed to be intended to be an extension of the A1174, but this never quite happened. In 2007, it was finally numbered as the A1035, which was diverted north between the A1174 and A1079 junctions, and the former A1035 became A1174. Then, in early 2015 the Beverley Southern Bypass (Minstergate) was opened, which took all A roads out of Beverley. The former A1035 became the eastern end of a diverted B1230 whilst the A1174 west of there was declassified.
