The B1307 is a complicated B-road on Tyneside.

It starts in Gateshead on the A184 Askew Road. It then heads north-west along Wellington Street and across the High Level Bridge into Newcastle upon Tyne. Most maps still show the bridge as being B1307 even though it is now only open to buses and taxis – quite a change from 1922 when it carried the A1!

After a short multiplex along the A186 by the cathedral, the B1307 continues north along Groat Market and Newgate Street to meet the B1311 Gallowgate. The B1307 has been one-way southbound up to this point but now becomes two-way and it continues along Percy Street to reach the B1318 Barras Bridge. This is where the ex-A1 continues straight and the B1307 turns right into St Mary's Place.

The B1307 then meets the B1309 (which goes down Durant Road to meet the A167(M) at New Bridge Street Roundabout) and then continues past Northumbria University before going under the A167(M) to cross the B1600. It then goes along Sandyford Road to end on the A1058 Jesmond Road.

The only part of the original route of the B1307 that is still followed by the current road is Sandyford Road. The B1307 originally started on the A695 Melbourne Street and headed north along Trafalgar Street before zigzagging into Chester Street. This section was largely taken over when the A1(M) (now A167(M)) was built and so some is unclassified and some destroyed.
