|Route outline (key)|
The B1284 is a short road in County Durham.
It starts on the A167 Chester-le-Street relief road and heads east. It passes the county cricket ground, crosses the River Wear and passes Lumley Castle before crossing the A1(M) without a junction. A short distance later the B1284 reaches the A1052 at a T-junction.
The B1284 multiplexes south along the A1052 for about a mile through Fence Houses until that road TOTSOs at Colliery Row. The B1284 continues south, crossing the A690 at a GSJ soon afterwards, before skirting the western side of Hetton le Hole. It ends on the south side of town at a mini-roundabout on the A182.
Originally, the B1284 consisted of only its present southern section, from Colliery Row to Hetton le Hole. It was extended west into the centre of Chester le Street in the 1920s before being cut back to its bypass when the pre-bypass main road through town was declassified.
