The B1191 crosses Martin Fen

The B1191 is a winding route across the Lincolnshire Fens.

The road starts on the A15 and heads northeast through Ashby de la Launde and over Scopwick Heath to reach Scopwick itself. There's a short multiplex south along the B1189, although the road originally just ran straight, after which the B1191 continues east. It goes over the Lincoln to Sleaford line at a level crossing and then continues straight to a crossroads on the B1189 west of Timberland.

There's a short multiplex north along the B1189 before the B1191 regains its easterly route. It heads through Martin before crossing Martin Fen to go over the River Witham and enter the golfing resort of Woodhall Spa. The B1192 turns off at a mini-roundabout after which the road runs along The Broadway and takes some time to leave town. After reentering open country the road bears left and crosses a bridge over the dismantled railway line it's been following since the River Witham. A few more zigzags take the road into Horncastle and its end at traffic lights on the A158 to the west of the town centre.

In 1922, the B1191 only existed between Martin and Horncastle; the section west to the A15 was added in the early 1920s but necessitated a multiplex along the B1189 for a short distance.
