B1090 south towards Walton Hill

The B1090 is a rural B-road in central Huntingdonshire. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in 1935.

The road starts on the B1043 to the south of Sawtry. Originally the B1090 met the A1 here but the road is now a short distance to the south of access to the A1(M) at J15. The road zigzags across the flat fields to the east before climbing steeply up Walton Hill. There's a T-junction near the top where the B1090 TOTSOs left after which we bear sharply right to run alongside the East Coast Main Line.

After more than a mile there's a sharp left-hand bend and we go over the railway line and enter the village of Abbots Ripton. On the far side of the village we TOTSO left (the unclassified road ahead takes us into Huntingdon) and continue along a fairly straight road, passing to the south of Kings Ripton, before crossing the A141 at a roundabout. This junction was once a crossroads lying just to the east - a layout still visible from the air.

The road continues on past RAF Wyton, which is accessed via a roundabout, after which there's a short rural section before the road ends at a T-junction on the A1123 just to the west of St Ives.
