B3055 near Ladycross Lodge

The B3055 is a medium-length B-road across the New Forest.

It starts on the B3054 at Hatchet Gate, about a mile west of Beaulieu, and then heads west through the Forest via Ladycross Lodge to the Mill Lane Bridge over the Lymington River. Here the road splits: the mainline continues to meet the A337 to the north of Brockenhurst (via a low bridge under the railway line) whilst the left fork (the original B3055) joins that road in the centre of the village.

In 1922 the B3055 ended in Brockenhurst. However, in 1935 it was extended further west so now multiplexes along the A337 to a point roughly halfway between both junctions mentioned in the previous paragraph before turning west and regaining its number.

It goes in a SSW direction then southwest under two railway bridges, one the branch line from Brockenhurst to Lymington and the other being the main line from London to Bournemouth. After going over the latter once more it then passes along the edge of the village of Sway, after which it again crosses that railway line before going on to Tiptoe.

It crosses the B3058 at a roundabout on the edge of New Milton before continuing on to Hinton where it terminates at 'give way' signs on the A35.
