B197 Link in Bangor
Heading east

The B197 is a short link road in Bangor town centre. It was originally unclassified; owing to its short length its history is not fully known but it is assumed to have gained its number in the late 1920s.

The road starts at a roundabout on the B21 (pre-bypass A2) Donaghadee Road on the eastern edge of Bangor town centre and heads southwest along the residential Hamilton Road, curving round to the left as it does so. We pass the park and then become one-way one block further on as we join the town-centre one-way loop; the unclassified Mills Road brings this in from the right.

We continue ahead along the remainder of Hamilton Road. After passing St Comgall's Church the road splits on meeting Main Street, marking the end of the B197. The B21 bears right, taking the loop with it, whilst the road to the left heads out of town past the station; this was originally the A2 and now appears to be a spur of that road, although there is evidence it could be the A21 instead.
