|Route outline (key)|
The B1024 is a north-south road in north Essex.
Originally it started on the A12 in Kelvedon. However, the village has now been bypassed and therefore the B1024 has taken over the old A12 through Kelvedon between junctions 23 and 24, thus allowing access to the A12 in both directions.
Returning to its original route, the B1024 leaves Kelvedon to the northwest and soon crosses the River Blackwater and enters Coggeshall. Again, a bypass has moved the road slightly. It used to cross the A120 in the centre of town and head out to the north. Now the A120 bypasses Coggeshall to the north and so the B1024 has been rerouted along the pre-bypass A120 to the east to meet the bypass and then multiplex back to reach its original route.
North of Coggeshall, the B1024 passes several farms but no villages before ending on the A1124 in Earls Colne. There is no bypass here!
