|Route outline (key)|
The original route of the B1112 was the road from Woolpit northwards to the edge of Thetford.
It started on the then-A45 at Woolpit (about half way between Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket) and headed north. At Ixworth there was a short multiplex along the A143, then the road soon arrived on the edge of Thetford. The B1112 ended on the edge of the town on the B1111.
It was decided to upgrade this road to Class I status very early and so it became the A1088 in the early 1920s.
