Route

The B3054 is a pleasant summer's drive, running almost entirely through the New Forest National Park.

Bull Hill

It starts on the A326 just outside Dibden Purlieu and heads westward through heathland before reaching Beaulieu Abbey and the village itself. There's then a TOTSO with the B3056 coming in from Lyndhurst, after which the road heads back out into open space, dropping down to within half a mile of the Isle of Wight ferry terminal at Lymington Pier. After crossing Lymington Bridge the road splits into two, with the main line (and original line of the road) heading towards a terminus on the A337 at Buckland, on the northern edge of Lymington, while a 770-yard branch ends on the same road just over half a mile nearer to the town centre.

History

The B3054 originally started on what was the B3053 in Hythe. It was curtailed to its current starting point when the Hythe bypass was built in the 1970s.

The original 1922 terminus of the B3054 was on the A35 in Christchurch. However, the section west of Lymington was quickly upgraded to the A3068 and, in 1935, became an extension of the A337.
