|Route outline (key)|
The B3012 is a rural drive through the MOD firing ranges of Deepcut and Pirbright. It is a twisty drive through heathland, with several 90 degree bends.
The road starts at Frimley Green at a roundabout junction with the B3411, and immediately crosses over the Woking to Basingstoke railway line and the Basingstoke Canal. Then it's out into the countryside, passing by the B3015 which leads up to Deepcut Barracks. The road twists and turns all over the place before a set of double bends take it underneath the Woking to Alton railway, which it shadows for the rest of its route. There's a faster stretch of road then to take us up to the lights with the A324 near Brookwood station.
The B3012 was originally part of the A321, although at times part of the road was unnumbered as it was privately owned by the MOD. It was downgraded around 1976 and rerouted to run via Ash Vale instead, though that road has also been downgraded following the completion of the A331 in 1995.
