Yalding

The B2010 runs from Maidstone to the Kent village of Yalding. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932, making it an early example of a recycled number

Starting on the A229 one-way system in Maidstone, it strikes out southwestward along a typical urban street towards Tovil. It then descends sharply before climbing up an equally sharp hill. We pass a couple of largish supermarkets on the right – a Lidl and a Tesco – each with its own carpark.

After climbing the hill and passing the wonderfully named Burial Ground Lane, the road heads out into the country where it TOTSOs right at Dean Street. It then heads towards East Farleigh, which it quickly passes through. The road retains its rural character as it speeds towards Kettle Corner, a very sharp bend which can take you by surprise.

There is then another fast section before we meet the B2163, which joins our route from the right at a sharp bend at the north end of West Farleigh. A quarter of a mile later, just after we have passed the Tickled Trout pub, the B2163 resumes its independent course, heading off to the left of our own route, which now becomes surrounded by trees and can be quite dim, even in the daytime.

The final section of road is not in the best of condition and has signs warning of falling rocks. It is also twisty and descends a fairly steep hill into Yalding, passing a road named Small Profits on the way. After the crossroads, it crosses the River Beult and ends on the B2162.
