|Route outline (key)|
The B1353 is a short B-road in east Suffolk. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.
The road starts on the B1068 in Coldfair Green and heads east, quickly entering open country. We soon reach Aldringham where the B1122 is crossed at a staggered crossroads. This is actually the original western end of the B1353; it did not continue west to the B1068 at first as that road did not exist in the area.
We continue east through a wood and presently enter Thorpeness. By the Dolphin PH the road bends round to the right to bypass the village centre (although the road remains residential). It briefly runs alongside The Meare (a lake), after which the road TOTSOs left then bears left into Benthills to run along the edge of the beach. Maps claim that the B1353 ends where the road bears left back away from the coast but there is nothing on the ground that would suggest this. This strange hook-shape at the eastern end of the B1353 appears to be original.
