|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at a south-facing GSJ at the southern end of the bypass and heads north across the fields. A new roundabout was constructed in 2015 which is planned to be a link for the Grantham Southern Bypass. It then crosses over the East Coast Main Line and enters the suburbs of Grantham.
A short distance further on the A52 comes in from the right at traffic lights and continues north along the former A1 into the town centre. It leaves us at traffic lights and bears left onto a relief road and the B1174 regains its number and continues ahead.
The road runs along the High Street before reaching a gyratory where we cross the A607. Until the 2000s the A52 multiplex ended here. We go back under the East Coast Main Line and go through the suburb of Gonerby Hill Foot, climbing into the next village of Great Gonerby, where the road runs along the High Street. The road reenters open country and descends to go over the Nottingham to Sleaford railway line, after which we pass Grantham North services and end just afterwards at a dumbbell GSJ back on the A1.
