Route

Postbox, Alyth

The B952 is a short B-road through the Perthshire town of Alyth.

It starts on the A926 to the east of New Alyth and heads north into town along Airlie Street. By the war memorial a road comes in from the right; this is a spur of the B952 which heads east along Meigle Road to meet the A926 and B954 at a roundabout.

The B952 continues north along Airlie Street into the village centre. The road TOTSOs right into the Market Place then crosses the Alyth Burn and bends sharply left. The burn is followed for a short distance before the road bears right and climbs the narrow streets before bending right into Hill Street. The road soon widens again. It leaves town and passes a golf course before ending on the B954, where that road has to TOTSO.

History

In the 1950s the A927 ran into Alyth along what is now the B952

The current route of the B952 is almost identical to its original 1922 route - it has just gained a spur to the roundabout to the south of Alyth in the intervening years.

However, the road was shortened early on. The entire length of Airlie Street soon became an extension of the A927, with that road ending in the Market Place and the B952 beginning there and running to Pitcrocknie.

This situation remained until the 1970s when the A927 was abolished. The B952 regained its old route, plus the spur. This was also part of the extension of the A927 but was originally numbered B953.
