|Route outline (key)|
The B1111 is a rural B-road in East Anglia. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s, making it an early example of a recycled number.
The road starts on the A143 in Stanton and heads north into Barningham before continuing slightly more easterly via Hopton to cross the River Little Ouse. The next village is Garboldisham, where we cross the A1066 (the original B1111) at a staggered crossroads.
Continuing north the B1111 cannons off a wood to the west before following a winding road through East Harling, crossing the River Thet on the far side of the village. We then (unexpectedly) pass an industrial estate before crossing the Breckland Line at a level crossing by Harling Road station. A short distance further on we go under the A11 at a simple GSJ.
The road continues across the fields, with the occasional wooded section. Presently the road passes the isolated church of St Margaret, Breckles, which lies some distance away from the village itself. The road ends a short distance further on at a T-junction on the A1075. However, that road only came into existence in the 1960s; before then the B1111 continued north to end on the B1110 on the southern edge of Watton.
