Holt Village Street

The original B3104 ran between Bradford-on-Avon and Melksham in Wiltshire. However, it was quickly realised by the MOT that the route carried enough traffic to warrant Class I status, so it was upgraded to become the A3053, probably by 1st April, 1924. This allowed the number to be re-used for another (previously unclassified) route in Somerset later on in the decade (one of a surprisingly large number of cases of pre-1935 number recycling).

However, the route has since been downgraded again, and (apart from a short section in Melksham itself which is the A3102) is now the B3107, itself a recycled number from Trowbridge (who needs soap operas when you can trace the history of obscure 4 digit B roads?).
