The B1279 is a short B-road in County Durham, running roughly parallel to the A181 for its entire length.
The western end of the B1279 is on the A181 to the west of Thornley. The road heads east through the village before bending sharply right to reach Wheatley Hill where it starts to head east again. There is then a short rural section before the B1279 reaches a T-junction on the B1280 where it ends. The A181 is now a short distance to the right.
