|Route outline (key)|
The B1365 is a semi-rural B-road in north Yorkshire. The road was originally unclassified but got its number in the mid-1920s.
The road starts as the southern continuation of the A1032 at an unusual GSJ with the A174. It heads south as a dual-carriageway to a roundabout where it becomes S2, although the wide verge is telling. We pass between Hemlington (to the right) and Coulby Newham (to the left); the latter is the location of Middlesbrough's RC Cathedral.
After another roundabout there are no more signs of aborted widening. The road now becomes rural; although there are still houses to the left there is no road access. Presently the road bears left to avoid the village of Newby and enters open fields proper. There's then a zigzag at Newby Grange and again at Tanton before the road approaches Stokesley.
Originally the B1365 entered Stokesley along Tanton Road to end on the A172. However, following construction of the town's bypass the road was diverted along a short stretch of new road to a roundabout where the A172 now leaves its original route. The B1365 then follows the pre-bypass road through town. The original southern end of the B1365 is met at a roundabout, after which we follow Springfield into the town centre. We turn right at a roundabout (ahead is the B1257) and run along the High Street and through the Market Place. After the road has become residential again it TOTSOs left into Thirsk Road and crosses the River Leven to end at a triangular junction back on the A172.
