The now-unclassified former A326 in Greatham

The original A326 was a rural A-road connecting Farnham with the A3.

The road started on the A31 to the west of Farnham town centre and headed south into the woods. The road soon entered Hampshire and continued through the military town of Bordon before going through Liss. It ended on the A3 at Sheet, just to the east of Petersfield.

In 1935 the road was renumbered as an extension of the A325, which originally only ran north of Farnham. Construction of the current line of the A3 in the early 1990s has made things more complicated. The ex-A326 is still numbered A325 until the edge of Greatham, where the new road bears left to meet the A3. The old A326 through Greatham is unclassified and heavily traffic-calmed - but on the far side of the village it becomes the B3006, which crosses the current A3 and takes the road into Liss. In West Liss the B3006 TOTSOs; the unclassified road ahead is the old A326, which soon meets the current line of the A3, which has been built on top of the former A326 line for a mile or so. The final section into Sheet is again unclassified and partly closed to traffic; it joined the old A3 (now A272) at pretty much the same place the new A272 link road does.
