|Route outline (key)|
The B2202 is a short link road in the centre of Hailsham, now considerably shorter than in its heyday. Owing to the road's short length its history is not fully known; it was originally part of the A22 and had definitely gained its number by the mid-1950s.
The route starts where the B2104 turns from London Road into Summerheath Road, whilst our road continues ahead along the remainder of London Road. After going over a dismantled railway line, now the Cuckoo Trail footpath, we reach traffic lights, where the A295 comes in from the left along Battle Road and continues ahead along the High Street.
The B2202 currently ends here, although when first classified there was a short multiplex ahead, after which the A295 bore right into North Street whilst the B2202 continued ahead, remaining on the High Street. It descended before turning right into George Street, ending at the far end back on the A295 North Street.
The London Road section of the B2202 still has that number, although some maps claim it to be a spur of the B2104, and the remainder of the road is unclassified and one-way in the direction described.
An amended OpenStreetMap trace for this route awaits uploading to the SABRE Wiki.
