Wardentree Lane, Pinchbeck

The B1180 is an unusually shaped road to the north of Spalding. The road was originally unclassified but the number came to the area in the mid-1920s, making this an early example of a recycled number.

The road starts on the A151 in Pinchbeck West, just south of that road's bridge over the River Glen. The B1180 then heads east along the south bank of the river (there is also an unclassified road on the north bank). There are a couple of bridges along the route and at the second the unclassified road crosses the river, forcing the B1180 to give way. We TOTSO right to head away from the river then cross the Lincoln to Peterborough railway line to enter Pinchbeck itself. The road runs through the village along Knight Street and soon reaches a T-junction on the B1356.

Until the 2000s the B1180 ended here. However, it was extended following construction of the A16 Spalding bypass, to give the road its current W-shaped route. The road thus multiplexes south along the B1356 through the centre of Pinchbeck then regains its number by turning left at traffic lights. The road heads east through an industrial estate then continues on to a roundabout on the A16. This last short distance is a spur, however, and the mainline of the B1180 turned sharply right at the previous roundabout to cross Vernatt's Drain and reach the River Welland. The road runs into town alongside the river, ending at the first bridge, which is part of a roundabout where the A151 is met once more.
