The B3001 is a rural B-road in the Surrey Hills.
It begins at a dumbbell junction on the A3
, where the A283
goes the other way. The A283 goes all the way to Shoreham. Surprisingly, this isn't as long. Before the A3 Milford bypass was built in the 1990s, the B3001 started at what is now the northern end of the short multiplex between the A283 and the A3100
in Milford, running along Old Elstead Road
. We follow the River Wey and keep an eye out for the nice countryside. The River Wey is crossed in Elstead and again by Waverley Abbey; the section in between is the surprisingly built-up Crookesbury Common.
When we enter Farnham, things aren't as picturesque. We take on all A287 traffic which wants to meet the A31. We then have to stop at a railway crossing, and then the A31 at a nasty crossroads, although there are at least traffic lights here. We then crash into Farnham Town Centre with its one-way system comprising the routes of the A325 and A287. So a nice road, but a sticky end.
