The former B2042 (now A290) near Blean

The original route of the B2042 was between Canterbury and the north Kent coast.

The road started on the B2040 on the southern edge of Whitstable. It headed south through the woods but met no other classified roads until right at the other end. It ended on the original line of the A2 on the western edge of Canterbury.

The B2042 number did not last long: it was renumbered A290 in the early 1920s. After the building of the A299 Whitstable bypass the section of ex-B2042 inside the bypass retained the A290 number for some years but was finally downgraded to become part of the B2205 in the 2000s.
