Route

B1105 towards Wells-next-the-Sea

The B1105 is a rural B-road in north Norfolk. Although the road appears to be out-of-zone it does follow some of its original 1922 route, the majority of which has now been renumbered.

The road starts on the A148 Fakenham By Pass, and heads north. It soon TOTSOs left before winding through typically flat Norfolk terrain to terminate on the A149 in Wells-next-the-Sea. It goes through no places of any size en route.

History

B1105 near Fiveways Junction in 1923

The original route of the B1105 was far longer and stretched back to the A11 at Barton Mills. However, it was quickly realised that most of the route then, as now, was busy and important enough to warrant Class I status. Consequently the section from Barton Mills to Fakenham was one of the first 'B' roads to have a section upgraded to 'A' road on 1st April 1924, becoming the A1065.

North of Fakenham, the B1105 originally went through Little Walsingham and several other places en route to Wells-next-the-Sea. Except for the first block north of the Fakenham bypass, the entire route was moved westwards in the 1990s onto formerly unclassified roads to bypass these places and make the road more rural.

Further north, the A149 went through Wells-next-the-Sea until the 1930s. When the bypass was built, the old road was renumbered B1105. This stayed as such until the 2000s when it was declassified.
