Route outline (key)
B135 Bethnal Green – Shoreditch
Brick Lane Market on Sclater Street

The B135 is a short B-road in the East End of London. The road was originally unclassified but gained its present number in the mid-1920s.

The road starts on the A107 Cambridge Heath Road on the edge of Bethnal Green Gardens. Just to the south is a bridge under the Great Eastern Main Line, which we follow for our entire route. The B135 heads west along Three Colts Lane and quickly go under the Lea Valley Lines, then bend to the left and follow the railway viaduct past the point where the two lines mentioned meet (this is not obvious from the road) and then on to Bethnal Green station (not to be confused with Bethnal Green tube station which is on the A107). Soon afterwards we reach the corner of Weavers Fields and zigzag left then right onto Dunbridge Street.

We skirt the southern edge of the fields to traffic lights where we cross the B108, after which we move away from the railway line. Presently the road bends to the left and passes warehouses as it moves into the narrow Cheshire Street. The final block is one-way westbound and also closed to traffic on Sundays for the Brick Lane Market. Brick Lane, the B134, is soon met and the B135 crosses at a staggered crossroads, now becoming one-way eastbound; this is also closed for the Brick Lane Market. The road runs west along Sclater Street and becomes two-way again as it runs alongside the railway arches carrying the East London Line, soon ending at a T-junction on the A1209 Bethnal Green Road.
