|Route outline (key)|
The B2097 was a short section of road with a complicated history, numerically speaking!
It started life as the B2097, before being upgraded to A2027 on 1st April, 1933 (the number being reallocated to the former A229 near Rochester). By the 1980s, it had been downgraded again to become the B2204 before being upgraded once more in the 1990s, but this time to the A271, with the B2204 number moving to the former A269 between Lower Street and Beechdown Wood.
The route itself is fairly straightforward. Starting on the A271 to the east of Boreham Street the road headed northeastwards. It followed a rural, semi-wooded course as it climbed along a ridge and passed the grounds of Ashburnham Place. After going through Stephen's Crouch the road ended when the A269 (present B2204) came in from the right.
