Grove Hill Road, Tunbridge Wells

The B2023 cuts a corner between the A26 northbound and the A264 eastbound in Tunbridge Wells.

The route starts at the point where the High Street turns right off the A26 London Road in the Mount Sion area of the town. Following the High Street as it turns northeastward, the B2023 crosses the bridge spanning the railway immediately south of Tunbridge Wells station before immediately turning right into Grove Hill Road. Some 400 metres later, the route TOTSOs to the left to become Prospect Road and ends at a light-controlled junction with the A264 by the Royal Oak public house.

History

The original south-to-north route of the B2023

The number B2023 was originally allocated, in 1922, to the 800-metre-long stretch of London Road which constituted an early "inner bypass" of Tunbridge Wella, running from the A26 at the south end of the High Street to the A264 northwest of the town centre. Today that route has become a part of the A26 itself.
