|Route outline (key)|
The B2211 is a short B-road in west Kent running round the edge of Chevening Interchange, where the M25, M26 and A21 all meet. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1930s.
The road starts at a roundabout at Morants Court on the A224 (old A21). Before the M25 was complete the A21 followed a straighter route along the now-unclassified London Road; the B2211 was slightly longer to meet it but the majority of this section is now lost under the motorway.
From the roundabout the B2211 runs parallel to the M25 until it reaches Chevening Cross. In this direction taking a right on the unclassified road would lead to a dead end in Chevening itself but going left from the B2211 would take you straight over the top of the interchange, lampposts and all. Sadly this road would become extinct if the proposal to build the M26-A21 slip roads was ever realised.
After the crossroads we go uphill from here and that this point we cross the M25, just a whisker away from J5, where at night there is a lovely line of lights on the motorway. After that things calm down and the road goes past some lovely posh houses before ending at the traffic lights with the A25.
