Approaching Cawood Bridge

The B1222 is a rural B-road to the south of York.

The road starts as a simple at-grade junction with the single carriageway A19 as it leaves York, just before the GSJ with the A64.

The road immediately climbs up and over the A64 and then continues in a fairly straight path, under a low bridge carrying the York—Selby cycle path (formerly the main railway line), until we get to the 20mph limit through Naburn. This part of the world is fairly disconnected due to the lack of bridges over the River Ouse and Wharfe, meaning some journeys which are only a couple of miles as the crow flies can involve a large detour, sometimes all the way up to the A64 and back again.

At Stillingfleet we have to give way to an unclassified road from the A19 (which is actually a much faster road than any of the B1222!) but the B1222 continues by turning right.

From here the road opens up into flat countryside with the road following a winding course over fenland. We continue to cross open ground until we reach Cawood but not before we are reduced to one lane over the Cawood swing bridge across the River Ouse.

In Cawood the B1223 crosses, where you can go North West to Tadcaster or South East to Selby. The road continues after the village to run in open countryside, the only significant height change being the bridge of the East Coast main line railway.

Eventually on the outskirts of Sherburn in Elmet the landscape takes on a more urban and industrial nature as we cross the A162 at a roundabout. We eventually go over the relatively new section of A1(M) and our journey ends just afterwards on a dual-carriageway section of the A63, which until 2006 was the A1.
