|Route outline (key)|
The B3075 is rural road essentially cutting a large corner off the A road route between Wareham and Blandford.
After a multiplex with the A351 it reaches Sandford, about a mile north of Wareham station (SY927892). It is single-carriageway throughout. The next section is through recently built housing before we find ourselves travelling north across Gore Heath.
The road has a few bends before it reaches the A35 at Morden Park Corner (SY913938), a notorious junction for traffic on the A35 when someone wants to turn right. We must do the quick left-right to continue our journey northward through the village of Morden. This is the B3075 at its narrowest, but even among the bendiest bits two large vehicles can pass reasonably comfortably.
A mile or so north of here, we encounter two sharp bends, first left, then right, before joining the A31 at the World's End pub (SY908980). This is the original northern end of the B3075 but since 1935 it has continued on. We therefore multiplex with the A31 for over a mile east, alongside the estate of Charborough Park with its famous brick wall running alongside, past Almer village and almost to Stag Gate, before we fork off to the left along the former B3076 and continue to the end of the road at Spetisbury (ST919019), where we can turn left onto the A350 to reach Blandford. The very last section approaching the village has a couple of tight turns, and also the topless remains of a railway bridge (the line was taken up in the 1960s), although this is difficult to spot.
