|Route outline (key)|
The B3083 is a short B-road in south Wiltshire. The road was originally the southern end of the A360 but got its number when that road was rerouted in the 1940s.
The road starts in the Wylye Valley by turning off the A36 at a triangular junction on the southern edge of Stapleford. It heads north through the village following a winding course (there is a straighter road up Butts Hill which is both steeper and narrower) and then continues into open country along the valley of the River Till. The river is crossed after which the road goes through Berwick St James and then reaches the A303, which is S2 at this point, at a T-junction.
There's a short multiplex east along the A303 past Winterbourne Stoke and the B3083 turns left to regain its northerly course. We climb to go over a hill as the River Till is following a longer course to the east but we descend into Rollestone and cross the river again. After a sharp left-hand bend the road narrows as it approaches Shrewton, ending at a T-junction on the A360.
