|Route outline (key)|
The B1122 is a rural B-road in the far east of Suffolk.
It starts on the A12 at Yoxford and heads east, crossing the Ipswich to Lowestoft railway line at a level crossing, then going through Theberton before passing Leiston Abbey.
The B1122 enters Leiston by crossing another level crossing. This is adjacent to the old railway station whose platform is still visible, although the line was closed to passengers in the 1960s and is now only used for freight to/from Sizewell power station.
In the centre of Leiston, the B1122 officially TOTSOs left at a set of traffic lights. However, traffic is directed straight on (onto the B1069) and then second left along King's Road to keep traffic away from the High Street. Northbound traffic is diverted in the same way.
Leaving Leiston, the B1122 crosses the B1353 at Aldringham before making a bee-line for Aldeburgh. It ends on the edge of Aldeburgh on the A1120, at a roundabout built on the site of Aldeburgh station, the end of the line from Leiston.
