|Route outline (key)|
The B1145 is a coast-to-coast route in Norfolk.
It starts only a few miles from The Wash on the A149 King's Lynn bypass, although originally it started closer to the centre of town; the road's western end is now numbered A1076. The road heads east, crossing the Peddar's Way and the A1065 and then going through Mileham and North Elmham before reaching Bawdeswell, where it multiplexes east along the A1067 bypass for a short distance before regaining its number and continuing its eastward route.
The B1145 goes through Reepham before reaching Aylsham and a roundabout on the A140. Again, a bypass has been built and the B1145 multiplexes along that for a couple of miles. Continuing east, North Walsham is soon reached and the town centre is again avoided. Here, the multiplex is along the A149 which we saw last over 40 miles to the west!
Continuing northeastwards, the B1145 goes through Swafield and Knapton before reaching Mundesley. It goes through the village before ending on the unclassified (formerly B1159) Beach Road, only a stone's throw from the North Sea.
Despite its length, the B1145 is very similar to its original 1922 route; only the bypasses are different.
