|Route outline (key)|
The A3070 became an A-road in the mid-1920s by taking over the southernmost stretch of the B3165 between the A373 (current A35) at Raymond's Hill and the A35 (current A3052) in Lyme Regis, passing through Uplyme en route.
Although the A3070 survived until at least the 1970s it has now returned to its original number. I suspect that it is more often used these days in conjunction with the B3261 in Axminster as a route in and out of Lyme.
