|Route outline (key)|
The B1280 is a rural B-road in east Durham.
It starts at a Diamond interchange on the A19 as the westward continuation of the A179 from Hartlepool. It heads roughly northwestwards through Station Town (which no longer has a station) and then reaches Wingate, where it meets the pre-bypass A181 at a roundabout before meeting the current route of the A181 at a GSJ - an unusual one given that both roads are S2.
