|Route outline (key)|
The B2131 is a short B-road on the edge of the South Downs.
The eoad starts in Ramnest Common on the A283 and heads west through a wooded countryside lightly dusted with houses into Haslemere. It meets the A286 at the town hall roundabout before multiplexing along that road for one block to the west. The A286 then TOTSOs left and the B2131 continues ahead. It passes Haslemere station before swerving to go under the railway line.
Half a mile later the B2131 splits in Shottermill. Carry straight on for a short link to the northbound A287. However, the mainline has had to TOTSO – it crosses the A287 at traffic lights. After going under the railway line again the B2131 reaches a roundabout where it meets a spur of itself (which left the A287 less than half a mile to the south of the traffic lights just mentioned).
Continuing west, the B2131 crosses Linchmere Common before going under the same railway line for a third time and then arriving in Liphook where it meets the B2070 (originally the A3) at a mini-roundabout.
Originally the B2131 crossed the A3 at a staggered junction before continuing west via Longmoor Camp to end on the A326 at Greatham. When the A3 bypass was built it took over part of this route west of Liphook; the rest was simply declassified.
In exchange, the B2131 has been extended north of Liphook along the pre-bypass A3. At the junction it used to head west; it now heads east along London Road, ending half a mile later at an eastward-facing GSJ on the A3.
