|Route outline (key)|
The B1148 was the original number of the road from Norwich to Fakenham.
It started on the A147 (present A1402) to the north of Norwich city centre and headed northwest via villages such as Attlebridge. In Bawdeswell there was a multiplex along the B1145 through the village, after which the road continued in the same direction. Finally the road entered Fakenham along the now-unclassified Norwich Road and ended in the centre of town on the A148.
The road was seen as important early on and it was soon upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A1067, which it remains with the exception of a couple of bypasses.
