|Route outline (key)|
The B2088 is a short road on the eastern edge of Sussex, now shorter than in its heyday.
The road then continues eastwards through Beckley before ending on a mini-roundabout on the A268 in Four Oaks.
In 1922 the road ran along its current route before continuing east along what is now the A268 through Peasmarsh and Rye Foreign to end on the B2082 at Playden. The whole of this was renumbered A268 in 1935 and so the B2088 number disappeared.
It was not missing for long, however, as within ten years the B2087 which ran from the A28 near Northiam station to the A268 at Four Oaks was renumbered B2088 for no apparent reason. These two roads then swapped numbers in the 1960s to give the current situation, where the present B2088 is the western end of the original route allocated to that number.
