|Route outline (key)|
The B1168 is a B-road across the Lincolnshire Fens.
It starts on the B1166 at Holbeach Drove. Although the other end is at the similarly named Holbeach that is still some distance away.
After a couple of miles of dead-straight road to the northeast, the B1168 crosses the South Holland Main Drain and then reaches Holbeach St Johns. As the village lies east-west, the B1168 has to bend sharply at either end of the village before regaining its northward journey. The B1165 is soon crossed, with that road having to give way, and then the B1168 starts to bend, eventually reaching Holbeach.
The B1168 crosses the B1515 at a five-way set of traffic lights in the centre of Holbeach. Although the B1168 goes directly across the traffic lights, this is not the direction suggested by the road markings. A short distance afterwards, the B1168 ends on the A17 Holbeach bypass. Originally, the B1168 ended in the centre of Holbeach; it has taken over a short section of pre-bypass A17.
