|Route outline (key)|
The B1121 is a B-road with spur in east Suffolk.
Originally it started on the A12 at Bigsby's Corner to the south of Samundham. However, when the A12 bypass was built, the B1121 took over the entire section of the pre-bypass road through Saxmundham. It therefore starts on the A12 at Dorley's Corner and heads south through Saxmundham and Bigsby's Corner to meet the A12 again at Benhall Green.
Meanwhile, the mainline of the B1121 turned off eastwards at Bigsby's Corner to go through Sternfield and end on the A1094 soon after the village of Friston.
In 1922 the B1121 continued east from here to the Moot Hall in Aldeburgh (which was then inland rather than on the sea front as it is today). It was decided early on that Aldeburgh needed a Class I road to it and so the A1094 was created, taking over the eastern section of the B1121 and then heading south via Snape to avoid Saxmundham.
