|Route outline (key)|
The original route of the B2053 was a short link west of Broadstairs.
Later, the route of the A255 through St Peters was moved onto the new Broadstairs Road and the B2053 took over its old route along the High Street.
In the 1990s many roads on Thanet were renumbered and so the original section of the B2053 became part of the A256, whereas the eastern extension was declassified.
