The B1268 south of Upleatham

The B1268 is a short B-road in north Yorkshire, now half as long as it was originally.

It starts on the A173 at Upleatham Bridge, between Guisborough and Skelton. From here it heads roughly north into Upleatham then roughly east to meet the A174 at Corngrave.

This has been the eastern end of the B1268 since 2000 when the A174 was rerouted along the ex-B1267 to bypass Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Before then, the B1268 continued on into Saltburn, entering town along Marske Mill Lane to end on the A174 Marske Road, on the western edge of the town centre.

Update May 2019 - Redcar and Cleveland council now seem to have downgraded the road in its entirely. At the A173 junction, the sole destination is "Upleatham" with no road number displayed. At the Four Lanes End junction (near Corngrave Farm), it is now signed as "C1268" in both directions, to Saltburn one way and to Upleatham the other way. Despite this, OS mapping still shows the road west of that junction as class B.

A look on Google Streetview shows that this has actually been the case since at least 2009! It may even be possible that all of the B1268 was downgraded at the same time.
