|Route outline (key)|
The B1357 is a rural B-road near Spalding. The road was originally unclassified but came into existence in the mid-1920s, only running north of the A151. It was soon extended south to the A1073 at Cowbit and then cut back slightly in the 2000s when that village was bypassed by the A16.
The road starts at a roundabout on the A16 Cowbit bypass and heads east across the Fens to the village of Moulton Chapel, where it bends sharply left. Now heading roughly northwards there is a mile-long straight before the road starts to wind to reach a T-junction on the B1165. There's a short multiplex north alongside a ditch until the B1165 TOTSOs left and we continue ahead, still alongside the ditch.
A few more bends take us into Moulton and we run through the centre of the village. On the far edge the A151 is crossed at a staggered crossroads (marking the original southern end of the B1357) after which we run through Moulton Seas End (presumably on the coast before the draining of the Fens). A dead straight road across Moulton Common takes us to the end of the road, at a T-junction on the A17.
