Route

Dismantled Railway Bridge

The B1110 is a rural B-road in Norfolk.

It starts on the B1146 to the north of East Dereham and heads vaguely northwards. It goes through North Elmham before bending sharply right to cross a dismantled railway line - the bridge has been removed but the abutments remain. After going over the River Wensum it crosses the A1067 at a staggered crossroads in Guist. Several villages further it meets its second A-road, the A148, at a roundabout on the Holt bypass. The B1110 ends here.

History

The B1110 used to be double the length it is today. It originally started on the A134 in Thetford and headed north through Croxton into what is now the Stanford Battle Area. It bypassed Thompson and Merton before reaching Watton and following what is now the A1075 as far as East Dereham.


The B1110 crossing the future Stanford Battle Area
The Stanford Battle Area section was downgraded in the 1960s leaving stubs of the B1110 either side. The A1075 was also created in the 1960s to provide a route from Thetford to East Dereham bypassing Stanford and so it took over the B1110 between Watton and East Dereham, thus dividing the B1110 into three parts. The two stubs either side of Stanford were downgraded once it was realised they served no useful purpose so now the B1110 only consists of its northern section.

More recently the road immediately north of East Dereham has been renumbered B1146, presumably on the grounds that Fakenham is a more usual destination than Holt.
