Route outline (key)
B1039 Royston - Wendens Ambo
Barkway Street, Royston

The B1039 is a medium-length rural B-road to the south of Cambridge.

The road starts on the A10 at a gyratory on the south side of Royston town centre and leaves town along Barkway Street. It crosses the B1368 on the edge of Barley before entering Cambridgeshire for a short distance (which includes the village of Great Chishill with its prominent windmill).
Great Chishill Windmill

The county changes again to Essex and we pass along a section of road with barely a house to be seen before we go under the M11 and enter the village of Wendens Ambo. The B1039 goes over the railway line close to the station (which is named after the nearby stately home of Audley End, rather than the village) before ending on the B1383 (former A11).

The road contains a variety of different finger post signs of different vintages, some of which can be seen in the linked gallery.
