|Route outline (key)|
The road starts on the B1003 Tritton Road in the Boultham area of the city and heads west along the residential Skellingthorpe Road. There's a level crossing almost immediately over the Lincoln to Newark line and then the road continues through the suburbs. It's not long before the road appears rural as it passes through Hartsholme Country Park, with the road running alongside the lake, but this is brief and we quickly reach the suburb of Birchwood. The road continues straight and leaves the houses behind just before the end of the road at a roundabout on the A46 bypass. The village of Skellingthorpe lies on the far side.
