|Route outline (key)|
The B2114 is a rural road running parallel to — and occupying, for some of its length, part of the former route of — the A23 in Sussex.
The B2114 starts in two different places. OS Maps shows it as starting at the M23 J11, and running adjacent to the A23, however the council shows it as starting at a roundabout between the limited access (southbound offslip only) junction on the A23 just south of Pease Pottage and the former A23 Brighton Road. . The road then heads south on what used to be the northbound carriageway of the A23, hence it is wide and straight. The old southbound carriageway has been removed but its ghost can still be seen.
After leaving the now abandoned A23 Handcross bypass alignment the B2114 meets the B2110 at a mini roundabout, and multiplexes with the B2110 for some 570 m through the village of Handcross on the original route of the A23 (which road has had three routes in this area including the current one). There are then two Y-junctions, both marked on maps as the B2110, though the second is a short spur back onto the A23. The route then bears slightly left and runs through the village of Staplefield before merging into the B2115 at Slough Green, 2 km west of Cuckfield. The TOTSO on the B2115 can be explained by the fact that the road ahead to Whitemans Green and the B2036 was the B2114 until comparatively recently.
