|Route outline (key)|
The B1104 is a rural B-road in east Cambridgeshire. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number after World War II.
The road starts on the B1382 in Prickwillow and heads south out of the village along Putney Hill Road. However, we're in the Fens and so any gradient is completely imperceptible - we don't cross a single contour line on the OS map for a few miles yet.
The road crosses Isleham Fen and eventually crosses that contour line. It soon enters Isleham and passes the churchyard to reach a T-junction where it TOTSOs right then bends left shortly afterwards to regain its southerly route. We leave town along Station Road - the bridge over the old railway line is still in existence although the old line itself has been assimilated into the surrounding fields.
It's not long before we reach the B1102 and multiplex along it for a short distance. Although the line of the B1104 continues straight the B1102 bears left then right to follow it and so through traffic on the B1104 has to give way in both directions. After we turn off to regain our number there's a short, straight section before we end at a T-junction on the northern edge of Chippenham.
