Route

Langham Road

The B1156 is a short link road in north Norfolk.

It starts on the A148 on the edge of the village of Sharrington and heads north to Smoker's Hole then turns west to Langham. It TOTSOs right on the near edge of the village and then continues north to end on the A149 in the centre of Blakeney.

History

The above route has only been the B1156 since the 2000s. Prior to that, the section north of Langham was part of the B1388 and the rest was unclassified. However, the B1156 did exist in the area: a short distance to the east.


The B1156 in 1923

The original route of the B1156 lasted until the entire road was moved west in the 2000s. It started on the A148 in Letheringsett where it headed north along Blakeney Road alongside the River Glaven. It passed through Glandford before bearing left in Wiveton and ending on the A149 in Blakeney, slightly to the east of the present northern terminus.

The original route of the B1156 was probably downgraded owing to its narrowness; the question remains, however, how it lasted so long in that position.
