North of Misterton

The B1187 was a rural B-road on the left bank of the lower River Trent.

It started at a junction that has now been bypassed on the A631 at Beckingham, Nottinghamshire, a few miles west of Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. It headed north through the village before crossing the same railway line twice and going through Misterton. It crossed the River Idle, moved into Lincolnshire, crossed the railway line a third time and then crossed the Warping Drain in quick succession before zigzagging through Haxey, gateway to the Isle of Axholme.

The B1187 crossed the Isle of Axholme, going through villages like Epworth and Belton before the River Torne was crossed and the road ended at a junction with the A18 and A161 to the south of Crowle.

The B1187 was upgraded to Class I status in the early 1930s, becoming an extension of the A161, which it remains.
