The now-unclassified former B1330 Furnace Bank

The B1330 was a short B-road in east Northumberland.

It started on the A194 (now A193) at Bebside, between Blyth and Bedlington. It headed north across a fairly flat landscape before zigzagging to descend a steep slope to cross the River Blyth at the narrow Furnace Bridge. The climb up the other side of the river valley is still steep but not as bendy.

The B1330 then went through Sleekburn, now known as Bedlington Station. It had to TOTSO right when it met the B1331 to cross the railway line at a level crossing adjacent to the actual station (now closed), then TOTSO left on the other side.

Continuing north, the B1330 passed Bomarsund to enter Stakeford. It turned sharply left in the centre of the village before coming to an end on the A196.

The southern section of the road was declassified in 1960 when the Kitty Brewster Bridge was built over the Blyth to the east of the Furnace Bridge. Bedlington Station was given a bypass at the same time and the B1330 was transferred onto this new route. Later on, the road over the Kitty Brewster Bridge was renumbered A189 as part of a new main road in the area. The remainder of the ex-B1330 north of Bedlington Station has been upgraded to Class I status as the A1147.
