|Route outline (key)|
The B1010 is a rural B-road in southern Essex.
It starts at the Oak Corner roundabout to the west of Woodham Mortimer. It then heads roughly east to bypass Purleigh to the north before coming to a halt at a T-junction on the B1018.
Originally, the B1018 did not exist here and so the B1010 turned right before taking the first left and going through Latchingdon and Althorne. In the 1980s the routes of the B1010 and B1018 were changed, so that the B1010 is now the dominant number in a multiplex to the south before zigzagging across a double mini-roundabout to the east of Cold Norton, where the B1018 turns off.
The B1010 continues south before turning left at the next T-junction, where it meets the end of the B1012. A few miles later it meets its original route in Althorne before it zigzags across the fields to end on the B1021 on the northern edge of Burnham-on-Crouch.
