The C372 starts at a roundabout on the A231 outside Chatham Dockyard in Brompton. The road heads north along Dock Road, sandwiched between the Dockyard and the Royal School of Military Engineering. Of note here are the numerous old signs embedded into the walls of the barracks - these would indicate where the busses would go when the dockyard was still open. The C372 becomes Maritime Way and dual carriageway crossing a roundabout that leads to the entrances of the Historic Dockyard and a designer outlet centre. The next roundabout is with the A289 and has a filer lane for quick access to the Medway Tunnel. One further roundabout is reached, which contains the exit to the designer outlet and numerous businesses. The C372 designation ends here, although the road continues over a former lifting bridge onto St Mary's Island.
As the road links two A-roads and is a major connector between them, it is perhaps surprising it does not have a 4 or 5 digit A-road designation, although some maps suggested it as A2310.
