The A170 (former B1262) heading west

The original use of the number B1262 was upgraded to Class I status in the early 1920s, allowing the number to be reused. The second incarnation of the B1262 was in the same area.

In 1922 the A170 started in Scarborough and headed west via East Ayton to Pickering. However, it was soon decided to reroute the eastern end of the road along what was the B1261 to meet the A64 in Seamer. This left the road between Scarborough and East Ayton without a number and it was given the recently available number B1262. The road started on the western side of Scarborough on the A171 and headed west up Stepney Hill. After a curve at the top the road descended more gently into East Ayton, ending on the then-route of the A170.

In the 1970s, the change was reversed: the B1262 became A170 again and the East Ayton to Seamer road became B1261 again, so the current situation is identical to 1922 despite 50 years of difference!
