|Route outline (key)|
The B2158 was an early 'B' road that, although not part of the original 1922 Road Lists, was in place by 1st April 1925, running along Homestall Lane in Faversham. This allowed traffic from Whitstable to reach the A2 without going through the town centre.
This route soon become popular enough to be upgraded to an 'A' road, and became the southern section of the original A299; the B2158 number was reused elsewhere on 13th April 1927 giving a terminus ante quem.
After the creation of the Thanet Way in the 1930s, which took over the A299 number, its use was diminished, and the road became unclassified, which it remains.
