|Route outline (key)|
The B1366 is a fairly short B-road in north Yorkshire. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A174 (former B1266) in the centre of Loftus. It descends Station Road to cross a stream and then goes under the railway line which formerly ran to Whitby but which now goes a short distance east to a potash mine. The station building is still there, however, and we pass it as we bear right on the far side of the bridge.
There's a sharp left-hand bend in the village of Liverton Mines before we enter open country for the first time and climb to Liverton itself. On the far side of the small village the road enters the North York Moors National Park and we then continue along a dead-straight road across Liverton Moor. Presently the road ends at a T-junction on the A171.
