|Route outline (key)|
The original route of the number B1262 was the coast road between Scarborough and Burniston, although except in Scarborough itself it was not that close to the coast.
Starting on the A64 Westborough in Scarborough town centre, the road headed north through town along Aberdeen Walk, Castle Road, and North Marine Road before leaving town. It ran through Scalby to reach Burniston, where it ended on the A171.
The route was deemed important from the beginning and so it was upgraded to Class I status in the early 1920s, becoming the northern extension of the A165. That road has now been upgraded in Scarborough and so the southern end of the B1262 is now numbered B1364, except for Aberdeen Walk which is unclassified.
