|Route outline (key)|
B1147 was the number allocated until 2015 to a short road – now the C888 – in central Norfolk.
Until the 1990s the B1147 had started on the A47 in the centre of Dereham (also known as East Dereham) and left town along Theatre Street. When the A47 bypass was built, the B1147 was also taken out of the town, to begin at a GSJ on the eastern section of the bypass and then follow the old route of the A47 away from Dereham as far as Etling Green. From here the B1147 headed north to pick up its original route immediately south of Swanton Morley (at a junction where the old route still has priority).
The B1147 continued north through Swanton Morley, crossing the River Wensum and running through Bylaugh Wood before reaching its terminus on the A1067 Bawdeswell bypass.
