This article is about the original B1198, the Lincolnshire coast road (now part of the A1031 and A52).

The former B1198 (now A1031) near Skidbrooke North End

The B1198 was the original number given to the Lincolnshire coast road, from Old Clee (near Cleethorpes) in the north to Skegness in the south. Except for a few miles, it was never very close to the coast.

The B1198 started on the A1030 (now A46) in Old Clee and headed south via Tetney to meet the B1201. Here it turned sharply east to cross the Louth Canal and reach North Cotes, where it turned south again. Crossing the coastal marshes, it went through North Somercotes before reaching the coast near Saltfleet. It stayed under half a mile from the sand most of the way to the edge of Mablethorpe, where it ran through town to the sea front and then followed the promenade south to Sutton on Sea.

There then followed a large loop inland via Huttoft and Mumby before the road reached the coast again at Ingoldmells and followed it to Skegness. It ended there on the A158.

In the early 1920s, the A1104 was created to give Mablethorpe a Class I road; this was routed along the section of B1198 immediately inland from the town giving the B1198 a useless multiplex. At a similar time, the northernmost section of B1198 was renumbered A1098 and B1401.

By 1932, the whole of the B1198 south of Mablethorpe had become the A154. Furthermore, the road had been extended again in the north owing to an A1098 bypass of Humberston. (The B1401 had been upgraded to A1031.)

The number B1198 finally disappeared after World War II when the remaining section was renumbered as an extensive southern extension of the A1031. Round the same time, the former Mablethorpe-Skegness section became the A52.
