The former B2077 is a nice run through mid-Kent countryside.
It started on the A251 at Bounsgate Corner, just south of Leaveland. It headed southwest skirting Longbeech Wood before reaching the A252 at Stocker's Head and multiplexing along the A252 into Charing.
Originally the B2077 reappeared in the centre of Charing at the junction of the A252 and A20. However, the A252 was rerouted to bypass Charing to the north in the late 1920s. The B2077 therefore took over that road's old route into the centre of the village and there crossed the A20.
Continuing southwest, the B2077 crossed the River Great Stour before passing through Pluckley and then crossing the Southeastern Main Line. Smarden was the next village and then a couple of miles later the B2077 ended on the A274 (originally B2078) at Standen, a short distance north of Biddenden.
The B2077 was declassified following the opening of the M20 in 1991.
