|Route outline (key)|
The B1264 is a rural B-road near the Yorkshire bank of the River Tees.
It starts on the A167 by High Entercommon, to the north of Great Smeaton, and heads roughly northeast. The road does not pass any places of note for the first few miles but eventually it reaches Low Worsall. To the east of the village the route of the B1264 has been straightened by the building of an embankment and cutting; the original line of the B1264 took the narrower road still accessible to the south.
After meeting the B1265 and crossing a railway line adjacent to Yarm station, the B1264 ends at a roundabout on the A67. Straight on is the A1044 but it was the B1264 until the 1960s as the A1044 used to take the parallel - and partly destroyed - Leven Road.
