The B1263 is a rural B-road in north Yorkshire. The road was originally numbered B6273; the original route of the A1 lay along the present A167 and so the road was correctly numbered in the 6 zone. However, in 1924 the A1 was rerouted to the west onto its present route via Scotch Corner. The B6273 was now placed entirely in the 1 zone and so was given a suitable number, as the B1263; this was the only road that was moved out of zone by the renumbering.

The B1263 starts on the B6271, where that road TOTSOs on the southern edge of Scorton. We head north into the village centre and reach the village green; rather surprisingly the road round the edge is one-way, making it a gyratory of sorts. We leave at the eastern corner and head out into the open fields.

The road goes over the top of Atley Hill, where the route has been straightened but still bends to the left rather sharply, and then passes to the east of North Cowton before going over the East Coast Main Line. The road then crosses the original line of the A167, now closed to traffic, before ending on the present line of that road at a T-junction.
