Apleyhead is a grade separated junction in Nottinghamshire, linking the A1 with the A614 and the A57. It was originally the junction between the A57 and A614. The A57 to the east was dualled in 1958, with the A614 to the north being dualled the following year, and both of these became the A1 in 1961. With the dualling the junction became a standard at grade roundabout, until it was upgraded in 2007, with the A1 bypassing it to the east, and the original roundabout becoming part of a dumbbell arrangement. It now also links up with the B6420 to Retford. This road used to join the A1 to the east of Apleyhead, but owing to the realignment of the A1, the B road was cut off and rebuilt to join the A1 at the roundabout.

The eastern roundabout is of a teardrop shape; traffic from the east on the B6420 wishing to use it to perform a U-turn must continue to the western roundabout.

This junction has been called several names in its history. It has been called (amongst others) Dukeries Roundabout (after the area), and Five Lanes End (commonly heard on travel reports). The name Apleyhead finally stuck after the grade separation works as the Highways Agency erected new advance signs for the roundabout with the "Apleyhead" moniker displayed prominently at the top.
