|Route outline (key)|
The B3373 is an urban B-road in the northern suburbs of Plymouth. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.
The road starts at the roundabout that stops the A386/B3413 junction from being a cloverleaf. It heads northwest along Budshead Road to a mini-roundabout on the edge of a grassed area, where it turns right.
Now on Tamerton Foliot Road the B3373 goes through a cutting and then becomes residential once more. It descends to a short dualled section at the junction with Southway Drive, whose two carriageways are very spread out giving the impression of an abandoned GSJ - although the terrain and lack of any other significant features suggest this is merely coincidence. Continuing west there's a brief tree-lined semi-rural section before the B3373 enters Tamerton Foliot and ends at a sharp left-hand bend, with the continuation of the road being unclassified.
Originally the B3373 continued for another mile and a half through the village centre and out again along Station Road, a journey which currently requires a TOTSO. It ran along the northern edge of the Tamerton Lake (an inlet of the Tamar) to end at Tamerton Foliot station on the Tamar Valley Line. Although the line still exists the station does not but it took until around 1990 for the road leading there to be declassified; it is now little more than a metalled track.
