|Route outline (key)|
The B1107 is a fairly short B-road across Thetford Forest.
The road starts at a roundabout on the A11 Thetford Bypass; before this was built the road ran into Thetford along what is now the A134 and met the old A134/A11 junction just past the river Little Ouse. The B1107 route goes through the extensive Thetford Forest and unusually heads north to get from Norfolk into Suffolk. The road emerge after a few miles at Brandon, where there's a one-way loop and westbound traffic has to TOTSO on meeting the B1106. The road becomes two-way again just before meeting up with the A1065, where it ends.
Thetford Forest was planted in the 1930s to increase the UK's self sufficiency in timber; the land around here is sandy and of poor quality. The nearby hamlet of Santon Downham regularly has the UK's warmest temperatures.
