Looking north along Lincoln High Street

Until it was declassified in 2017 the B1262 ran along part of what had been the A15 southern approach to Lincoln.

The route left the A15 at a roundabout where that road bears right to bypass the city centre and ran north along what is known as the High Street (although it starts some 1.5 km from the city centre).

Shortly Dixon Street (another road which was declassified at the same – it had been the B1360) comes in from the left at traffic lights. Some maps still show the High Street as partly dual-carriageway but the central reservation was in fact removed in 2012. The church of St Peter at Gowts was passed (right), its tower having been visible for some distance, and, from this point on, the cathedral becomes very visible on the ridge ahead.

The former St Mark's railway station (closed in 1985 and now converted to use as a shopping centre) adjoins the left side of the High Street. The old level crossing has been removed but another remains a little further on, just west of Lincoln's other (and now only) station: the former Lincoln Central.

The B1262 ended at a traffic-light-controlled junction with Wigford Way / St Mary's Street (the A57). The High Street was pedestrianized beyond this point, and is now further closed to vehicular traffic beyond the St Mark Street / Tentercroft Street junction 150 m further south.
