|Route outline (key)|
The B3065 is a short B-road to the south of Poole. The road was originally unclassified. Its western end became the B3368 in the late 1920s but in 1935 the road was given its current route and its current number.
The road starts at the County Gates Gyratory on the border of Poole and Bournemouth, which also sees the start of the A338 and a useless multiplex of the A35 along that road. Meanwhile the B3065 heads south along The Avenue, an apparently rural road with the houses set back behind the trees.
Presently we reach the coast at Branksome Beach; the road bears round to the right and heads back inland slightly. With the sea no longer visible we head through the suburb of Canford Cliffs and presently reach a mini-roundabout where we turn left. We follow the residential Haven Road and presently end at a T-junction on the B3369 Shore Road. That road is well-named as it runs along the side of Poole Harbour. Brownsea Island is clearly visible ahead.
