B1026 Colchester - Heybridge
This article is about the current B1026 that runs from Colchester to Heybridge.
For the original B1026 in Colchester town centre, that is now part of the A134, see B1026 (Colchester)

Abberton Reservoir

The B1026 is one of several routes from Colchester to Maldon. The B1022 is the other, while the "fast" route is the A12 and B1018. This is the newest road, however, only gaining its number around 1st April 1926.

The B1026 starts at the Headgate in Colchester on the A134. It heads uphill past the Police Station and the Colchester Garrison, with a couple of spurs west to the B1022, before reaching the countryside. After a few miles, it goes through Layer de la Haye and crosses Abberton Reservoir. There are a number of 90-degree turns into Tolleshunt D'Arcy, where there is a brief multiplex with the B1023.

After this, the road leads towards the Blackwater Estuary, past Goldhanger and Heybridge. It ends on the B1022 just north of Maldon town centre.
