|Route outline (key)|
In 1922 the A3037 only linked to the A358 (later A303) once in Ilminster. Prior to 1935, a separate number, the A3038, was used listed as linking Ditton Street and High Street. However, this is shown on MOT half inch maps (as shown right) as continuing northwards along North Street from Ditton Street up to the High Street.
Both streets are very narrow and too narrow for two vehicles to pass easily. At some point a one way system was instituted, southbound along North Street and Westbound along Silver Street. Both roads were in any case declassified when the Ilminster bypass opened in 1988 and the A3037 was abolished.
