The B3090 passing through Market Place in Frome

The B3090 number now applies to the former route of the A361 through Frome.

It starts at the Marston Gate Roundabout to the south of the town and heads north-east along Marston Road and then The Butts. After descending Butts Hill, the B3092 joins from the right, and almost immediately the road reaches the short multiplex with the A362. After less than 100 m, the two routes split once more at a mini roundabout, the B3090 taking Bath Street into the town centre, where it passes along Market Place and over the bridge. This bridge is unusual, in that it is lined with buildings on one side, disguising the fact that the road crosses the river. Continuing in a north-north-easterly direction, the road changes from Fromefield to Bath Road, and then to Oldfield Hill as it leaves the town behind.

After passing through the small hamlet of Oldfield, the original route of the A361 diverges to the left along what looks to be no more than a country lane into Beckington, while the B3090 continues along a new piece of road to meet the roundabout with the modern A361. To the left is the Beckington bypass, and to the right the Frome bypass.
