|Route outline (key)|
The B1017 connects eastern extremities of Essex with the rest of the country.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout by the church in Great Wakering. Head east from here along unclassified roads to Shoeburyness and Foulness Island - either way and you'll be watched by the MoD.
The B1017 heads west through the village to reach a mini-roundabout where it turns south, then west again on the edge of North Shoebury. It ends soon afterwards on a roundabout with the A13
In 1922, the B1017 headed straight on at the west end of Great Wakering into Trotters before meeting the A13 at Bournes Green. This section was declassified in the 1980s with the road truncated to its current route.
