|Route outline (key)|
The B1141 is a roundabout route in Great Yarmouth.
The B1141 is very much a "long-way-round" road. Its start and end (both on the A1243) are under a quarter of a mile away but the road takes a mile longer to complete the same route. Starting at the eastern end of the Haven Bridge the road heads north along North Quay to cannon off the A149 at a roundabout. Now heading south it descends the D2 Fullers Hill before becoming one-way. It skirts the eastern edge of the town centre along Temple Road. The road goes under the Market Gates shopping centre then passes St George's Park where it TOTSOs right at traffic lights. The road then follows Alexandra Road, almost a shared space, into Yarmouth Way, although the route here is not obvious at all. The road ends at the far end of the road at traffic lights.
In 1922 the route of the B1141 was far less bizarre. It started at its current "northern" end and headed south along South Quay, passing its current "southern" end and continuing as far as Main Cross Road where it morphed into an unclassified road.
