|Route outline (key)|
The B1064 runs along the majority of the pre-bypass route of the A134 through Long Melford.
It starts at a roundabout with the A131 and A134 at the point the Sudbury bypass becomes the Long Melford bypass and heads north, past Rodbridge Corner and into Long Melford. It runs along Hall Street through the village, ending on the A1092 near Melford Hall. That road continues north along the old road to reach the far end of the bypass.
The route above has only been the B1064 since the 1980s with the building of the bypass. However, the original 1922 route of the B1064 was also in the area and both coexisted as a Y-shaped road until the 2000s when the original route was downgraded.
From 1922 until it was declassified in the 2000s, the B1064 started on the pre-bypass A134 at Rodbridge Corner and headed west across the River Stour to enter Essex. It went through Foxearth before recrossing the Stour and ending in Cavendish on what is now the A1092.
