|Route outline (key)|
The B1140 is a rural B-road in east Norfolk. The road was unclassified for many years until it was created in the early 2000s. The road is presumably a revision of another version of the B1140, although the route followed is rather different and only coincides for a few hundred yards through Panxworth.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout on the A1151 on the southern edge of Wroxham. It heads south across the fields into Salhouse, where it turns left at a mini-roundabout. Another rural section eastwards takes us to a T-junction where we TOTSO left to run through Panxworth. There's a TOTSO right soon afterwards.
A couple of miles further on we reach the dual-carriageway A47 and cross it by means of a staggered crossroads between two adjacent gaps in the central reservation. Continuing south the road goes over the Norwich to Great Yarmouth railway line and then runs through Beighton. Presently the road reaches Cantley. It zigzags sharply left then right to enter the village before heading south along Station Road. After passing the entrance to the sugar factory (presumably the reason for the road's existence) the B1140 ends at the level crossing on the Norwich to Lowestoft railway line, with the station just to the right.
