Route

Roundabout on Stonebridge Road

The B2175 runs through the Kent town of Northfleet.

The road starts at a roundabout where the A226 bears off onto a bypass and the B2175 takes over its former route. We head eastwards, climbing past Northfleet station to run along the High Street (which is largely residential). Presently we bear right to pass the Catholic Church (a smaller version of Liverpool Anglican Cathedral) and then left onto the dead-straight London Road. The road passes through the suburb of Rosherville to end at traffic lights where the A226 comes in from the right and continues along the road ahead.

History

The B2175 in 1927

The B2175 came into being in the late 1920s by taking over a previously unclassified road at right-angles to its present route. Starting on the then-A226 (present B2175) in the centre of Northfleet the road headed south along Springhead Road to end on the B262 Hall Road.

Following the construction of the A226 Northfleet bypass the B2175 was extended along the pre-bypass road, giving our road a T-shape. This didn't last long, however, as the original section of the road was then declassified within the bypass and renumbered A2260 outside; this latter section is now the B262.
