B1432 Cold Hesledon - Little Thorpe
This article is about the current route north of Peterlee, Durham.
For the original route between Winceby - Partney in Lincolnshire, see B1432 (Winceby - Partney)

Near Hawthorn

The B1432 follows part of the pre-bypass A19 in east Durham.

The road starts on the B1285 just east of the A19 and heads south. This junction was reconstructed in the 1990s; the A19 was until then accessible from here and not further south as is the case today. We head south along the B1432 past an industrial estate and under the A182 before moving away from the A19. After passing the village of Hawthorn we cross a small valley and climb into Easington.

On the near side of town we reach a T-junction on the B1283, which is where we leave the route of the old A19. This road is crossed via a short multiplex to the left, after which the B1432 continues south through town along Thorpe Road. After returning to the fields the road ends at a surprisingly large roundabout on the A1086, suggesting more was planned here at one time.


The DfT Card Index from c2002 gives the following, rather lengthy, description of the proposed route of the B1432:

Reserved for Durham. When A19(T) realigned the superseded length between Easington and Seaham will take this mo. Also a short length of A182 will be added to this route from Easington tp Little Thorpe. This route will then run through from Dane Bridge (North of Seaham) to Little Sharpe (South of Easington.)

This implies that the original plan was for the B1432 to continue north along the old A19 past Seaham, to meet what is now the A1018 at the roundabout near Ryhope Dene (Dane Bridge?). Ultimately, this became part of the extended B1285 with the B1432 only taking on the southern part of the old A19 route.
