The eastern end of Locking's one-way loop

The B3368 is a short road through Locking, a small village near Weston-super-Mare, following the former route of the A371. The latter's new route was built in the late 1930s, providing a bypass to Locking and allowing the passage of completed aircraft from the Bristol Aeroplane Company shadow factory at Elborough (to the east) to Weston Airport, which lies to the west of Locking. The B3368 took over its old route straight away.

It seems unusual to use a B-number in such a way but it was quite common at the time. The loop marked on maps has not always been all the B3368, but is now a one-way system to relieve some narrow roads; the westbound route is the original road, whilst the eastbound route, which has to TOTSO twice, was originally built to serve a modern housing estate.
