The B657 is described in the 1922 Road Lists as Branch in Letchworth.
It started on the A601 (later A505) Baldock Road and headed north along Norton Way South. Originally it ended just before reaching the railway line. However, it was later extended west, parallel to the railway line, to reach the station (which must have been the road's raison d'être in the first place). It never reached a second classified road.
The road survived into the 1970s but has since been declassified.
