|Route outline (key)|
The B1216 is a short B-road in the space between the River Trent and Scunthorpe.
It starts on the A18 at Gunness, near the furthest downstream bridge over the River Trent. It heads downriver to Grove Wharf, then turns right at a roundabout to head inland. The road originally ran via Neap House, along a road which still exists but which has been blocked off along its length. The B1216 ends soon afterwards on the A1077.
Originally, the B1216 continued beyond this point along an easy-to-follow route as far as Crosby Warren, the junction with the current A1029 (the original B1217). This section was declassified in the 1990s.
