Route

Brixton Deverill

The B3095 is a medium-length B-road in west Wiltshire.

The road starts at Longbridge Deverill on the A350. It then climbs into the hills alongside the River Wylye (pronounced Wy-lee) going through various other 'Deverills' en route: Hill, Brixton, Monkton, Kingston.

After then leaving the river (and the Deverills) the B3095 climbs Mere Down then descends to go under the A303 at a GSJ. It passes through Mere village and ends on the B3092, where that road has to TOTSO; continue ahead along that road to the other end of the Mere bypass.

History

Originally the northern end of the B3095 was on the A36 at Heytesbury. It headed west via Sutton Veny to cross the A350 at a staggered crossroads in Longbridge Deverill. In 1935 the former B3352, which ran from Sutton Veny north to the A36 at Boreham, now a suburb of Warminster, was renumbered to become a spur of the B3095. The entire of this section has now been declassified, possibly due to its proximity to the Warminster bypass.

At its southern end, the B3095 originally ended to the east of Mere on the B3090. That road became the A303 in 1933 and then in 1935 the B3095 was extended via a multiplex along the A303 through Mere onto the former B3094 as far as Milton on Stour to end on the B3092. When the A303 Mere bypass was built the B3095 took over the entire of the pre-bypass route through Mere giving the road a second spur in addition to the one at the northern end. However, this did not last long as the B3092 was rerouted via Mere taking over the Mere spur and the entire section of former B3094.
