|Route outline (key)|
The B2176 is a largely rural road in west Kent. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.
The route starts on the B2027 at Chiddingstone Causeway, just east of Penshurst station, and heads south. We climb Station Hill to reach a T-junction where we turn right and then skirt the edge of Penshurst Park to reach the village of Penshurst itself.
There's another T-junction in the village centre, where we turn left (right is the B2188) and then bear round to the right to cross the River Medway. The road climbs out of the valley and continues winding to the east before climbing again to reach Bildborough. Although the village centre is to the right there are houses alongside the B2176 for some distance and the road is still partially built-up by the time we bend sharply round to the right to end at a T-junction on the A26.
