Seaham Road, Houghton le Spring

The B1404 is a fairly short B-road in east Durham. The road was originally unclassified, except for the eastern end which was part of the A1054, but gained its number in the late 1920s.

The road starts at the north roundabout of the A182/A690 interchange in Houghton-le-Spring and heads east through the suburbs along Lake Road. This road soon marks the edge of the urban area, with fields on the left and houses on the right for some distance further, until the road bears left on meeting the B1260.

We follow a straight road eastwards past a golf course and climb to pass a second golf course and then descend into Seaton. On the far side of the village we cross the A19/A1018 GSJ. There's access to the northbound A19 and back again but no other movements from the B1404. The road then enters the outskirts of Seaham and reaches its original eastern end at traffic lights on the B1285 (pre-bypass A19).

There's a brief multiplex south along the B1285 past Seaham Town Park to a mini-roundabout where the B1404 turns left to regain its number. We run into town along Station Road before bearing right at a mini-roundabout (Station Road continues ahead to the station) to end at a roundabout on the B1287 shortly afterwards.
