|Route outline (key)|
In 1922, the B1213 formed a major north-south route parallel to the former Grimsby - Louth railway line. It has now been largely superseded by the A16, which is built on the former railway formation, but it still follows its original route.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A46 Weelsby Road and heads north along the residential Hainton Avenue. Welhome Road, which is numbered B1212 to the left, is crossed at traffic lights and then the road bends slightly to the right. We pass to the east of Grimsby town centre and unexpectedly meet the eastern end of the A1136 at another set of lights; we're now in an inner-city shopping area and this lasts until the end of the road at traffic lights on the A180.
