|Route outline (key)|
The B2087 is a short link road in east Sussex. Although apparently rural it is lined with buildings for most of its route.
It starts at a traffic-light-controlled crossroads on the A21 in Flimwell, with the other road met being the A268. It heads west through the village, then on to Union Street and Dale Hill. Here the road splits and, for a short distance, the B2087 is made up of two parallel one-way roads.
The above road was unclassified in 1922 but became a westward extension of the B2087 in the 1920s. Prior to that, the B2087 only existed east of Flimwell. It ran along what is now the A268 via Hawkhurst to the A28 at Newenden. Then, at a similar time to the westward extension, the road was also extended eastward via a multiplex along the A28 over the River Rother towards Northiam, after which the road headed southeastwards to end on the B2088 at Four Oaks.
The extended B2087 only existed for a few years as the Newenden to Ticehurst section was renumbered A268 in 1935, leaving only the eastern extension to Four Oaks with the B2087 number. However, within the next ten years this section was renumbered B2088 instead (and has now become the A268) and the B2087 number was given to the road's current route.
