|Route outline (key)|
The B1119 is a rural B-road in east Suffolk.
It starts on the A1120 in Saxtead Green at a triangular junction opposite the famous windmill. It heads east through Framlingham, where there's a short multiplex with the B1116, and Rendham before the road crosses the A12 Saxmundham bypass via a staggered junction.
The B1119 continues east into Saxmundham where it zigzags round the centre of town and multiplexes with the pre-bypass A12 (now numbered B1121). After regaining its number and easterly route it cannons off a railway line before entering Leiston. It ends in the centre of town at traffic lights. Left and straight ahead are the B1122 whilst the road to the right is numbered B1069.
The above route has only been accurate since the 1950s; prior to that the route was all part of the B1115.
The 1922 route of the B1119 started in Dennington on the B1116 and headed east for just over a mile to end on the B1120 at Badingham. In the early 1920s it was extended west to meet the B1115 at Saxtead Green and remained so until the coming of the A1120 in the 1950s. This took over the B1115 west of Saxtead Green and the B1119 to the east and so the B1119 was moved to the other road leading out of Saxtead Green.
