|Route outline (key)|
The B1041 is a short link road heading north from the Huntingdonshire town of St Neots. The road was originally unclassified, except for the northern end which is on the original line of the A1; however, owing to the road's short length it is not known exactly when it gained its number.
The road starts at traffic lights on the B1428 (former A45) in the centre of St Neots and heads north along New Street. We quickly enter open country (although the "field" on the right is actually a sports pitch), after which we bear left to cross the River Great Ouse by a sluice and then a lock.
The road skirts the edge of Little Paxton to reach a T-junction on the original line of the A1. Traffic wanting to head south can follow the unclassified road to the left but the B1041 TOTSOs right, still passing Little Paxton. The southbound offslip soon merges in on the right after which the B1041 goes over the A1 before turning into the northbound slip roads.
