The B1204 is a fairly short B-road in north Lincolnshire. The road was originally unclassified but got its number in the late 1920s.
The road starts on the A1077 in South Ferriby. The Humber Estuary is just visible from here but the B1204 heads south away from the water. It contours south through the village, with a steep hill to the left and a descent to the flat land around the River Ancholme to the right.
The road soon goes under a pipeline carrying stone away from a quarry to the east and then enters open country. The road continues to contour and passes through a number of small villages interspersed with scattered houses. After going through Worlaby the road moves away from the ridge and then follows a dead-straight route across the flat land to end at a T-junction on the B1206 (former A15) on the edge of the grounds of Elsham Hall.
