|Route outline (key)|
The B2189 was a short road in the Kentish village of Cranbrook.
Originally the A229 went through the centre of Cranbrook. Around 1930 the B2189 was classified for the first time as the village's western bypass, running along Angley Road. However, as may be expected, it was not long before the bypass was seen as more important than the road through the village; for this reason the A229 and B2189 swapped routes in the 1950s so the B2189 now ran through the village centre.
More recently the road through Cranbrook was declassified. The bypass remains the A229 mainline.
