The B3070 is a rural B-road in Dorset. It starts at traffic lights in Wareham town centre, setting off westward along (appropriately enough) West Street, which before the bypass was part of the A352. At the Wareham bypass roundabout it meets today's A352, which takes over the route for the next mile and a half.

At a left turn in Holmebridge (the route's original north-eastern end-point) the B3070 resumes and quickly crosses the River Frome. We traverse West Holme Heath and an army firing range, after which the B3070 reaches East Lulworth and, less than a mile further on, a T-junction at Burngate.

The right turn here is the B3071; we, however, turn left, to reach Lulworth Camp and then West Lulworth shortly afterwards. The road has been descending steadily towards the sea since Burngate junction and finally brings us to within a couple of hundred metres of the shoreline at Lulworth Cove.
