B1532 Pakefield - Lowestoft
London Road, Pakefield, looking north

The B1532 follows the former route of the A12 from south of Pakefield into the centre of Lowestoft in Suffolk.

The road starts at a large roundabout on the A12 on the southern edge of town and heads north through Pakefield along London Road. In the centre of what is now a suburb the B1384 comes in from the left and we continue along the straight road to London Road Baptist Church, where the road splits.

Northbound B1532 traffic continues along London Road but this is now one-way (although just as wide as it always has been) and so southbound traffic is forced one block eastwards onto Kirkley Cliff Road, the former A1118; this is the closest road to the coast although the sea is rarely visible.

As we draw closer to Lowestoft town centre northbound and southbound roads draw nearer to each other and the southbound route runs along the Marine Parade which is narrower than the northbound London Road. There are one or two cut-throughs linking the two directions until they rejoin near the South Pier to end immediately afterwards at traffic lights back on the A12.
