Route outline (key)
B1098 Chatteris - Three Holes
Cotton's Corner

The B1098, like all the similarly numbered roads, crosses the Fens.

It starts end-on on the B1050 in the centre of Chatteris. It heads east, crossing the A142 eastern bypass via a staggered junction before zigzagging to meet the Forty Foot Drain. It crosses it and follows it west until it reaches the Sixteen Foot Drain. The road then heads northish along the Sixteen Foot Drain for most of the rest of its length.

The Sixteen Foot Drain is more-or-less straight and so the B1098 is as well. The road meets a number of B-roads en route. There's also a low bridge under the Peterborough to Ely railway line which has a loop of the B1098 running off the mainline to cross the line at a level crossing; this is the only route for high vehicles but requires two TOTSOs and a possible wait for trains to pass.

Presently the B1098 crosses the Sixteen Foot Drain and bears left away from it. It crosses Popham's Eau into Norfolk and reaches Three Holes where it comes to a T-junction. In 1922 the B1098 ended here on the B1101 (later numbered B1412). However, neither of these roads are still in the area and so the B1098 TOTSOs right to end on the A1101 shortly afterwards.
