|Distance:||1.3 miles (2.1 km)|
|Now part of:||B1198|
|Route outline (key)|
The second incarnation of the A180, and the first to appear as signed on the ground, was a short link road southeast of Durham.
It started on the A177 on the edge of Shincliffe and headed east along Mill Lane and Shincliffe Lane to end on the A181 at Sherburn, in the area of Byers Garth. At just over a mile it is one of the shortest 3-digit A-roads to have existed.
This road was unclassified in 1922 but took on the A180 number within the next ten years. It survived until the 1970s when the road was downgraded, becoming the B1198, and the A180 number was reused somewhere more important.
