|Route outline (key)|
The B3046 runs through rural mid-Hampshire.
It starts on the A339 just south of the bridge under the M3 and winds its way through rural countryside (including a detour to the west to avoid Bugmore Hill) to reach New Alresford, where it forms part of the picturesque market street. There's a brief multiplex with the B3047 (ex-A31) and a bridge over the A31 bypass, before a final section through Cheriton, where the B3046 ends on the A272.
