Piggott's Wood

The B2042 is a rural B-road in west Kent. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s, making it an early example of a recycled number.

The route starts on the A25 at Bessels Green, between Sevenoaks and Chipstead Interchange on the M25 spur. We head south along the residential Cold Arbor Road before bending sharply left to go over the A21. From here the road runs vaguely southwestwards through the wood before skirting the village of Goathurst Common.

There's a brief rural section as we descend Wheatsheaf Hill before we bypass the village of Ide Hill. Continuing our descent, we head back into a wood before reaching Cooper's Corner, where we bear sharply right. The road now zigzags westwards across country which is partly fields, partly wooded. We soon reach the Four Elms crossroads: the terminus of our route and of the B269 to our right. Each of other two arms – to our left and straight ahead – is today a section of the B2027, although 25 years ago both the B269 and the B2042 continued onwards from this crossroads to meet the B2027 on its original route a little further to the south.
