|Route outline (key)|
The A241 was a short link road across the Epsom Downs.
The roads started on the A24 in Epsom town centre. It ran south along Church Street, climbing as it went. Presently it left the town behind it as it ran across the open ground of the downs. At Buckle's Gap it passed a turning for the racecourse to the south before running east along Yew Tree Bottom Road to end on the A240 between Banstead and Burgh Heath.
The road survived at least until the 1977 but had been downgraded by 1985, becoming an extension of the B284. This downgrading took place around the same time as the parallel B280 (which the A241 met at its northern end) became part of the A2022 as a new Class I route east of Epsom.
