|Route outline (key)|
The original route of the B1154 was a rural road in northwest Norfolk.
It started on the A149 on the edge of Heacham and headed east via Sedgford into Docking, where it met two more B115x roads. It then headed southeast into Syderstone and thence to meet the A148 at Sculthorpe, near Fakenham, where it ended.
The B1154 was quickly upgraded to become part of the A1067. However, during World War II the eastern end of the former B1154 was destroyed with the building of RAF Sculthorpe (the junction between the A148 and B1154 now lies under the runway) and so a new road was built across Syderstone Common in the 1960s to take through traffic. A few years later, the northern section of the A1067 (the former B1154) was downgraded again and became the B1454, which it remains.
