|Route outline (key)|
The B1217 was a rural B-road in the very north of Lincolnshire.
It started in the centre of Scunthorpe before heading north through Winterton to the south bank of the Humber. It followed the river eastwards via South Ferriby to Barton-upon-Humber where it ended in the centre of the village on the B1218.
Owing to its importance the B1217 was upgraded to Class I status in the early 1920s, becoming the A1077. There have been changes in Scunthorpe and Winterton has now been bypassed by upgrading formerly unclassified roads around the village. However, the new classification is still more-or-less accurate.
