New Road, known as the Acle Straight

The number B1140 was first allocated to the Acle Straight, a new direct road built in 1831 between Acle and Great Yarmouth. The A47, meanwhile, took the earlier coaching route to the north via Filby and Caister-on-Sea.

On 1st April 1927 the direct road was reclassified as the A1096, and, in 1935, it was upgraded again to become the A47, which it remains.
