B1029 Stratford St Mary - Brightlingsea
The B1029 at Slough House Farm

The B1029 is a rural B-road to the east of Colchester.

It starts in Stratford St Mary, at junction 30 of the A12. It crosses the River Stour into Dedham (and Essex) before crossing the A137 in Ardleigh.

After going through Great Bromley, the B1029 crosses the A120 without a junction. It then comes to a halt at an unclassified road, which it crosses at a staggered junction. The reason the B-road takes second fiddle is because the road it crosses used to be the A604.

The B1029 then goes through Balls Green and Frating Green before crossing a railway line at a level crossing and meeting the B1027 in Thorrington. In 1922 this point marked the northern terminus of the B1029. However, the previously unclassified roads north became an extension of the B1029 very early on.

South of Thorrington, the B1029 enters Brightlingsea. It splits in Victoria Place; one section turns right along Station Road to the (now closed and demolished) station - this was originally numbered B1030. The other branch continues down New Street to end at the harbour.
