This article is about the current B3204 in Salcombe, Devon.
For the original B3204 in Brixham in the same county, see B3204 (Brixham)
In the beginning, the road from Kingsbridge to Salcombe was all the B3197, then at sometime in the 1950s, the A381 was extended from Kingsbridge to the edge of Salcombe. As the B3197 survived as a short road between West Alvington and Churchstow further north, it didn't seem right to have another bit of it in Salcombe. Now, most maps don't show a number for the Salcombe bit, but by 2003 it is finally marked as the B3204, a number it had probably held for many years.
