B3049 Stockbridge – Winchester

The B3049 near Sparsholt

In 1995, the opening of the M3 over Twyford Down caused all A-roads in Winchester to be downgraded, and as part of this exercise the western section of the A272 from Stockbridge to Winchester was reclassified as the B3049. Prior to 1935 the road was numbered A341.

The road starts in the east of Stockbridge by turning off the A3057 immediately east of that road's junction with the A30. We climb to the east and cross Stockbridge Down. There are more hills and bends but no places of any size are met until we reach the outskirts of Winchester.

After running through the suburb of Weeke, where we pass a couple of supermarkets, the B3041 crosses us between two mini-roundabouts. We continue into town along Stockbridge Road until a roundabout is reached and that street name bears left numbered B3044. We bear right and climb St Paul's Hill to reach another mini-roundabout. The road to the left, over the railway line, is one-way towards us and is part of the city-centre one-way system, presumably numbered B3420. The B3049 continues alongside the railway line, ending shortly afterwards at a T-junction on the B3040.
