The B1336 was a rural B-road north of Ashington in Northumberland.
It started on the A197 to the west of Ashington town centre and headed north. It zigzagged across a railway line before going through Ellington, the only place of any size en route. It passed a road on the left leading to Widdrington Station before entering Widdrington itself, where it ended on the B1337.
In the 1920s, the road was upgraded to Class I status, becoming part of the A1068, which it mostly remains.
The final mile or so of the B1336 into Widdrington has now been lost. The original road continued north from Houndalee to go anticlockwise round the castle mound. It met the road entering Widdrington from the coast at the point it currently bends sharply, before heading due west to join the B1337. This section of road was bypassed by the current route of the A1068 in the 1960s, presumably to allow for coal mining. The old road is now virtually untraceable on the ground and has been converted to fields.
