B1246 Barmby Moor - Bainton
Towards Pocklington

The B1246 is a rural B-road across the Yorkshire Wolds.

It starts on the A1079 (original A66) to the east of York and heads in a roughly easterly direction.

It skirts the north of Pocklington Airfield before reaching Pocklington itself. In the centre of the town the road TOTSOs right then left in such a way that suggests that it is taking on the former route of a road that now bypasses the town. This is not true, however; the only change of the route of the B1246 since 1922 is that it now goes along Grape Lane rather than Pavement, before turning into the Market Place. Given the narrowness of the B1246's official route through Pocklington (which includes the one-way Union Street), traffic is signposted along Chapmangate before route and number recombine at London Street.

Leaving town to the east, the B1246 crosses the Yorkshire Wolds Way footpath whilst climbing Kilnwick Percy Hill before descending the steeper Baggaby Hill to the village of Warter. Another shallower hill is crossed and the terrain becomes much flatter. The B1246 zigzags through North Dalton before ending at a roundabout where it meets the A614 and B1248.
