Grain Crossing, starting point of the B2001, as seen from the A228

The B2001 is the only road to the Isle of Grain and mainly runs across marshland and industrial estate.

Route

The road starts as a direct continuation of the A228 at a seemingly arbitrary point where the latter road reaches a level crossing near the Isle of Grain power station and the Thamesport container terminal. It initially runs southeastward for some 600 metres before a 90 degree leftward curve takes it northeastward heading towards the village of Grain itself. The road TOTSOs in the village and ends by a car park on the southern shore of the Thames estuary, with nothing more than a small path completing the journey to the shoreline.

History

The original route of the B2001

Originally the B2001 started end-on on the A228 in Hoo. This road was largely declassified in the 1950s. A new road, numbered A228, was built bypassing Hoo to the north; it then took over the B2001 from Stoke as far as Grain Crossing, leaving the B2001 with its current route.
