Route

Metheringham Heath Lane

The B1202 is a lengthy cross-country route avoiding Lincoln but allowing very slow progress.

It starts on the A607 at Boothby Graffoe, to the south of Lincoln. It heads more-or-less due east across fairly featureless landscape, before meeting the B1188 on the edge of Metheringham, the largest place on the route of the B1202. It multiplexes north along the B1188 for over a mile before regaining its number to head east again. It crosses the railway line and zigzags through Nocton and Potterhanworth to meet the B1190 at Potterhanworth Booths.

Another multiplex follows, as the B1202 follows the B1190 for a couple of miles across the Fens to Bardney. Regaining its number, the B1202 heads more northerly through Wragby, where it crosses the A158 at traffic lights, and Lissington before entering Market Rasen and meeting the A631.

The road straight ahead is the B1203, which suggests that the B1202 ends here. However, that is not the case and if you head west under the railway line you will find the B1202 reappears by the church and heads north for a short distance to end on the A46.

History

In 1922 the B1202 only went between the A158 and A631. It was extended south to the B1190 in the early 1920s but did not reach the A607 until 1935; these extensions were along previously unclassified roads. The northernmost section, in Market Rasen, was originally part of the A46; it was renumbered B1202 in the 1960s when a formerly unclassified road was upgraded to Class I status to take A46 traffic out of the centre of town.
