The B1070 is a rural B-road in Suffolk, now considerably shorter than in its heyday.

In 1922 the B1070 started on the A134 in Cross Green, to the south of Bury St Edmunds. It then followed what is now the A1141 as far as Hadleigh. This section of road was upgraded to Class I status in the 1960s.

When the A1071 Hadleigh bypass was built, the A1141 was curtailed slightly back to the bypass and the B1070 regained a short section of original route, together with the pre-bypass A1071 east of the town.

The B1070 heads south out of Hadleigh via Upper Layham. The road is not particularly straight and it zigzags across country before crossing the A12 at junction 31. It then skirts East Bergholt before meeting the River Stour, which it follows for a short distance to its end on the A137 at Cattawade, just inside Suffolk.
