B1342 Bamburgh - Belford
Level Crossing at Belford Junction

The B1342 links the Northumberland coast at Bamburgh to its nearest A-road, the A1. It is the closest classified road to the sea for its entire length.

The B1342 starts as the western continuation of the B1340 at the same junction that also sees the end of the B1341. It leaves Bamburgh along Radcliffe Road before running along the shoreline between Budle and Waren Mill (although if the tide is out this is all sand).

After zigzagging south for half a mile the road continues west, crossing the East Coast Main Line at a level crossing at Belford Station (whose station closed in the 1960s) before ending on the A1 half a mile later. The A1 now becomes the closest classified road to the coast. Indeed, zone 1 is now so narrow that the B1342 is the northernmost Class II road in zone 1 in England.

Before the A1 Belford bypass was built the B1342 continued ahead from here along what is now the B6349 to end on the original line of the A1 to the south of Belford village.
