Suton

The Norfolk version of the B1172 follows part of the pre-bypass A11 towards Norwich.

The road starts at a GSJ on the A11 Wymondham bypass. The eastbound offslip merges seamlessly into the B1172, after which a spur leading to the other three slip roads bears off to the right. The road continues on through the scattered settlement of Suton and soon reaches Wymondham where it goes over the connection between the preserved Mid-Norfolk Railway and the main Breckland Line and then bears right onto the first Wymondham bypass. There are occasional road junctions, for example a road between the town centre and the station crosses at traffic lights, but the road is largely free from such distractions.

Presently a roundabout is reached from where a dual carriageway ahead leads back to the A11; depending on the map this is either numbered B1172, B1135 or A11. Our road bears left then right at the following roundabout which marks the end of the B1172 bypass. The road ahead is the B1135.

We continue east, still along the old A11, and pass to the south of Hethersett, where the B1172 avoids the village centre by following a short bypass. Presently we reach a roundabout by the Cringleford park and ride for Norwich, then end at the next roundabout on the A47 southern bypass of the city. We return to the A11 here too.
