The B2095 is a road in two halves in east Sussex.
It starts at a nondescript turning near Hooe on the A259 in the Pevensey Levels, a junction that is easily missed (as I found!). The pretty little village of Hooe is actually about half way along this road, but is the first settlement that we reach as we head northwards. Another mile or so on, we reach the A269 at Lower Street, Ninfield.
A dog leg to the left leads us to the B2204 which continues north east to Catsfield, and then turns to the north. The B2095 then reappears at a fork where it turns off to the right along Powdermill Lane, along a wide and tree-lined route that initially seems worthy of B-road status. However, after dipping down a hill to cross a river, the climb towards Battle becomes steep and narrow, before improving once more as we reach our destination.
It is curious that the B2095 is in two distinct sections with a useless multiplex along the B2204 in between, although sanity is restored slightly when it is remembered that the original number of the B2204 here was A269 and remained so until the 1990s.
