|Route outline (key)|
The original use of the A3073 number was for a short A-road south of the Devon town of Bampton.
This road was originally the mainline of the A396. When that road was diverted along the Exe Valley away from Bampton the A3073 took over that part of the route south of the A398. Owing to the short length of the road it was therefore an ideal candidate to become a spur in the 1935 renumberings, when it got its original number back. Following the downgrading of the A361 (renumbered from A398 in 1935), the road became part of the B3227.
