|Route outline (key)|
The B1086 is a short B-road in Huntingdonshire.
It starts on the B1050 on the east side of Somersham and heads west through the village to meet the start of the B1089. This section - and the whole of the B1089 - was originally numbered A141 and only became the B1086 in 1935 when that road was moved away.
Now on its original route, the B1086 heads south past Pidley Parks where it ends very soon afterwards on the B1040.
The B1040 was moved here when its original route was severed by the building of an aerodrome during World War II. Before then, the B1086 continued beyond Pidley Parks to meet the original route of the B1040 in the centre of St Ives.
