Route

Formerly part of the A355 Blandford to Sherborne road, the A3030 is a fairly minor non-primary route in the north of Dorset. It is one of the least improved A roads in the county.

Lydlinch - Sherborne

Near Woodbridge

The A3030 starts at a T-junction with the A357 west of Lydlinch. The road here is often so quiet that deer frequent it in the early mornings. After a mile or so, the B3143 for Dorchester leaves to our left – this road is quite important as it's signed from Sturminster Newton. We twist our way through Bishop's Caundle, Caundle Marsh, Alweston and North Wootton in quick succession, each with a 30 mph limit connected by 40 mph areas in between. The road ends abruptly at a stop sign after a sharp bend on the A352 around a mile and a half short of Sherborne.

History

As mentioned above, this route was formerly part of the A355 route, but when that route was broken up and the ends given to the A352 and A357, the middle bit became the A3030.

Interestingly, this is therefore one of the few numbers that was recycled in 1935, most of the others lay dormant for a few years.
