Sainsbury's local, A1079 / A1165 junction

Sainsbury's was founded in London in 1869 by John James Sainsbury and his wife Mary Ann. By 1922 it had become the UK's largest grocery retailer, a position which lasted until 1995 when Tesco became the market leader.

A1165 Road

The A1165 is a road in two halves in the city of Kingston upon Hull.
The road leaves the A1079 Beverley Road at traffic lights in Newland, with the B1233 continuing our line west. We head eastwards along Clough Road, which starts residential but becomes lined with warehousing and light industry after a drain is crossed. After a roundabout the road becomes D2 to cross adjacent lift bridges over the River Hull, meeting a roundabout on the A1033 on the far side.
There is a multiplex south along the A1033 for over half a mile; the road starts off dual but later becomes single-carriageway and we go under a freight railway line. The road remains industrial, however. At one of the roundabouts the A1033 bears left whilst we take the right fork to regain the A1165. It heads south along Cleveland Street, which becomes New Cleveland Street to reach traffic lights on the A165 Witham. This is crossed via a staggered crossroads and we continue along Great Union Street, meeting a spur of the A165 at traffic lights before ending at a roundabout on the A63.
