|Route outline (key)|
The B1225 runs along High Street across the Lincolnshire Wolds. The road was originally unclassified but was given Class II status in the late 1980s.
The road starts on the A46 at the eastern end of the Caistor bypass and heads south. From the beginning the road runs along the top of a ridge and there are often good views on both sides. However, our road remains fairly flat. After a few miles there's a descent to the B1203, to which we have to give way.
Just to the west of Ludford we cross the A631, then the A157 a couple of miles further on. The ridge then appears to come to an end and the road descends before going over Beacon Hill then descending again. Presently the road skirts the eastern edge of Baumber, the closest it has come to an settlement of any size throughout its length, and ends shortly afterwards on the A158.
