The B1127 is a rural B-road in east Suffolk.

It starts on the A1095 on the western edge of Southwold. It heads north across the coastal marshes via South Cove to Wrentham where it meets the A12.

In 1922 the B1127 ended here. However, it was extended in the early 1920s and so now crosses the A12 continuing north to Henstead where it TOTSOs left. It crosses the former runway of Ellough Airfield (also known as Beccles Airport) and reaches a roundabout where it now terminates on the A145 south-east of Beccles.


History

Originally the B1127 continued straight at the current junction with the A145 to end on the A146 on the eastern edge of Beccles. A new link to the A146 was built at the same time as the A146 Beccles bypass allowing all traffic to avoid the town and the remainder of the route into Beccles became unclassified. The A145 took over this short link road on 28th September 2018 and part of the old route towards Beccles, when the rest of the Beccles Southern Relief Road was opened.


The gap in the B1127 in 1956

Interestingly, the Ellough Airfield runway actually severed the B1127 when it was built in the 1940s. Unclassified roads were brought in to service to allow through traffic but the airport runway was shortened in the 1960s allowing the old B1127 to be rebuilt and come back into use.
