B2044 Herne Bay - Sturry
This article is about the original B2044 from Herne Bay to Sturry, now A291.
For the later B2044 in Walmer, see B2044 (Walmer)
.


The A291 (former B2044) heading north

The original route of the B2044 ran inland from the north Kent coast.

It started on the B2040 a few blocks in from the sea front in Herne Bay. It headed south, passing the start of the B2045 before leaving town and then meeting no other classified roads until the other end.

After passing through Herne village, the B2044 zigzagged west to cross Herne Common before heading south once again through the woods. After a couple of miles it ended on the A28 in Sturry, just to the north of the level crossing.

The B2044 was renumbered A291 in the early 1920s. Even after the A299 Herne Bay bypass was built, the A291 continued into town until it was cut back to the bypass in the 2000s. The northernmost section of ex-B2044 is now part of the B2205.
