|Route outline (key)|
The B1379 was a fairly short B-road in south Cambridgeshire. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s. However, construction of the parallel M11 in 1980 caused the road to be declassified.
The road started on the A11 (present B1383) on a bend in Great Chesterford. It headed northwest under the railway line and soon reached Ickleton, where it zigzagged to the west to move away from the railway. A mile or so later the road turned sharply right once more to zigzag through Duxford and reach the A505.
On the far side of the crossroads the road went through Whittlesford before a couple of miles across open fields led to Little Shelford. Here the road turned sharply right to cross the River Granta and end on the A130 (present A1301) in Great Shelford.
