Route

Southend seafront

The B1016 follows the coast between Southend on Sea and Shoebury Ness. It meets two other classified roads, both of which end at the terminus points of the B1016.

The B1016 starts on the A1160 at the Kursaal in Southend and follows the esplanade eastwards as far as Shoebury Common. It then turns inland and ends end-on with the A13 by the church in Cambridge Town.

History

The 1920s route of the B1016

The history of the B1016 is complicated. In 1922 it started on the A13 in the centre of Southend and headed south along the High Street to end by the pier. Then still in the early 1920s it was extended east along the coast before turning inland along Southchurch Avenue back to the A13.

Then in 1935, the B1016 was extended along the coast to Cambridge Town. Rather than becoming a spur, Southchurch Avenue was renumbered B1015, then upgraded to the A1160 in the 1960s.

Later still, Southend High Street was declassified, leaving the B1016 with its current route.
