The B1195 is a rural B-road on the edge of the Lincolnshire Fens.
It starts on the A52 at Key's Toft, near Wainfleet St Mary. It heads roughly northwest along the pre-bypass A52 into Wainfleet All Saint, which marks its original eastern end just after the railway level crossing. The road then crosses the Steeping River and zigzags through Irby In The Marsh and Great Steeping before reaching Spilsby.
Originally the B1195 ended in Spilsby, on the A16 in the town centre. The A16 now bypasses the town so the B1195 continues through Spilsby to meet it. However, the road beyond Spilsby was originally numbered A158. When that road was diverted to the north of Spilsby in 1935, its old route became the A1115 but it was only 1988 that the A1115 was downgraded and the section west of Spilsby became an extension of the B1195.
Leaving the A16 behind, the B1195 now continues west through Hundleby and Mavis Enderby (whoever she is) before crossing the battlefield of the Civil War Battle of Winceby and ending on the current route of the A158 a few miles east of Horncastle.
