The B1229 runs along Flamborough Head in east Yorkshire. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its present number by 1932.
There is a square of B-roads in the village of Flamborough. Maps claim that the south and east edges are numbered B1255 whilst the other two are the B1229, meaning that our road has two starting points, both on the B1255: one by the church, the other at a roundabout in the village centre; the latter gives way to the former.
After leaving town the road heads west and crosses Danes Dyke. There's a zigzag through Bempton, the next village, after which the road is largely rural. It ends by climbing to a roundabout on the A165 Reighton bypass.
