The B207 is an urban B-road on the northern edge of the London Borough of Lewisham.

It starts right on the edge of the borough on the A200 Westwood Street. It heads south along Trundley's Road to reach a railway junction which it goes through: it goes under one line before it TOTSOs left to go along the side of Folkestone Gardens, then goes under another railway line before continuing south along Sanford Street. It skirts the northern edge of Fordham Park before turning right at a mini-roundabout into Pagnell Street. This road bends a few times and eventually reaches the A2 New Cross Road one-way system where the B207 ends.


The original route of the B207

The original 1922 route of the B207 is somewhat different, although the general route is still the same. The B207 originally started in Rotherhithe, on the A2208 Rotherhithe New Road, before heading south one block to its current northern terminus along a road that has now been taken over as part of the northbound A200. It continued south down the whole length of Trundley's Road, going under a railway bridge at the west end of Rolt Street. It then headed south along Woodpecker Road, now largely closed to traffic, before crossing the current route of the B207 at Sanford Street. It went straight on along Clifton Rise, the northern half of which is now a path through Fordham Park, before ending on the A2 New Cross Road just over 100 yards west of its current southern end.

The B207 still followed its original route in the early 1960s so it seems likely that post-war redevelopment moved the road to its current course.
