|Route outline (key)|
The B2008 is a largely urban B-road on the Isle of Sheppey with a complicated history.
Originally it started on the A249 at Cowstead Farm and headed east to the south of Minster. It had a bizarre useless multiplex with the A250 through the village of Eastchurch before regaining its number by the church and continuing east to Leysdown-on-Sea. In the 1950s all this became the A250 when the two roads swapped numbers. This gave the B2008 its current route.
The road now starts at traffic lights at the point where the northbound A250 (former A249) now TOTSOs left at Halfway Houses and runs eastwards through Minster before continuing in a southeasterly direction until it terminates near Eastchurch.
The A250 has been rerouted again (albeit still on Sheppey!) and so the southern end of the B2008 is now on the A2500, which has taken on the original section of B2008 to the west of the Eastchurch bypass. Beyond Eastchurch the road is now numbered B2231.
