The B1228 is a rural road in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
It starts at traffic lights on the A1079 just to the east of the A64 York bypass; northbound traffic must turn left to reach the A64 roundabout. The road crosses Dunnington Common to Elvington and then crosses the River Derwent at Sutton upon Derwent. It zigzags to cross the Pocklington Canal before heading vaguely south before crossing the A163 near Bubwith.
After a few miles of featureless countryside, the B1228 crosses the Selby to Hull railway line at a level crossing by Howden railway station before entering Howden about a mile later. The road multiplexes through town for a short distance west along the B1230 before regaining its number and continuing west to Knedlington where it meets the A63.
In 1922 the B1228 continued beyond Knedlington. It TOTSOed left to reach Boothferry and then crossed the River Ouse via a ferry before making a beeline for Goole, where it ended on the A161 on the western edge of town.
The Booth Ferry was replaced by the Boothferry Bridge slightly downstream in 1929, making it the only road bridge across the Ouse downstream from Selby (only two more – the M62 Ouse Bridge and the Humber Bridge – have since been built). This gave it sufficient importance to merit Class I status and so the B1228 between Boothferry and Goole became part of the A1041. This section is now numbered A614 and was the end of the B1228 for a very long time.
The A63 was diverted in the 2010s along a previously unclassified road and the end of the B1228 to bypass Howden, but the remainder of the B1228 is unchanged from 1922.
