The now-unclassified former B3185 near Silverton Park

The B3185 number was allocated in 1922 to the road which crossed between the A396 and A38 (now the B3181) to the north of Exeter.

It split from the A396 about half a mile northwest of Silverton. It headed through the village before swinging south near Silverton Park to cross the railway line by Silverton's distant station and then the River Culm. It passed Killerton Park before reaching the A38 just to the north of Gypsy Corner; this final section was severed by the M5 in the 1970s.

As stated above, the B3185 originally ended here but in 1935 it was extended along the entire route of the B3185. It therefore multiplexed along the A38 for 2 miles to the far side of Broadclyst before regaining its number. It zigzagged through Dog Village before crossing another railway line by Broad Clyst station and ending on the then-A30.

The entire road is now unclassified; this may be connected to the building of the M5.
