Near Coddenham

The B1078 is a long rural B-road heading east-west to the north of Ipswich.

It starts in Bildeston on the B1115 and heads east into Needham Market. This section of road was unclassified in 1922 and only became part of the B1078 in 1935. After Needham Market the B1078 heads east to the A14. The original route immediately east of here has been cut off by the building of the dual carriageway and so through traffic has to go along one of the slip roads and then up the A140 to rejoin its original route.

The B1078 continues east through Coddenham to Otley Bottom where it multiplexes along the B1079 for about half a mile. It regains its number and continues east into Wickham Market. In 1922 it ended here on the then-A12 (now B1438) but it was extended in the early 1920s.

Leaving Wickham Market to the east the B1078 passes its station (some distance out of town) before crossing the B1069 in Tunstall and then going through Tunstall Forest to end on the B1084 near Sudbourne.
