The B1183 is a largely rural B-road in east Lincolnshire.
After Cowbridge, the B1183 crosses the watercourse, now the West Fen Drain, but continues following its bank to Frithville, where the B1184 multiplexes with it through the village. Now free of the fen drains, the B1183 continues dead straight northwards via New Bolingbroke and a large number of scattered houses before bearing left to meet the A155 at Revesby.
The B1183 crosses the A155 at a staggered junction and continues on to Moorby, after which it changes direction completely and heads more west than north before skirting the parkland of Scrivelsby Court and ending on the A153 just to the south of Horncastle. For drivers familiar with the part of the B1183 south of the A155 the section to the north is somewhat of a shock: the road is somewhat winding with few straight sections.
The B1183 is almost identical to its 1922 route. Its southernmost section has been taken over by the A1137 - it originally started on the A16. The road's original route was along the western side of the West Fen Drain; it was moved onto its eastern side in the 1930s.
