|Route outline (key)|
The B2204 is a short B-road in east Sussex.
The road starts at Ninfield at a mini-roundabout on the A269 and goes North Eastwards past Hurst Wood. It follows a relatively straight road down into a valley and continues signposted Catsfield. Here the road negotiates some traffic islands, rises and curves and then appears to reenter open country before reaching the village centre and a 30 limit.
After Catsfield, which has a pub and zebra crossing, the unmarked B2095, which has multiplexed along the A269 and the B2204 so far, leaves to the right along Powdermill Lane. Battle is not signposted along this road even though it is the quicker route than the B2204 and the A271. At this junction the B2204 rounds the corner to the left and winds its way through the wood, before terminating West of Battle at a T-junction on the A271.
The B2204 came to the area in the 1980s when the A2027 was downgraded. This road started at the current B2204/A271 junction at Steven's Crouch (where it started on the then-A269) and followed the path of the present A271 to the TOTSO it now has with the A269.
The whole of the modern route used to be the A269, with the roads getting their present numbers in the 1990s.
