The B3106 is a short B-road running north of Trowbridge.
It starts in the middle of Trowbridge at a Mini roundabout with the A363. It winds through the northern suburbs using separate one-way streets before skirting two sides of an industrial estate with several roundabouts en route.
The road reaches a mini-roundabout on the B3105 on the edge of Staverton and then multiplexes west along this road through the village. It regains its number immediately after a narrow bridge over the River Avon, controlled by three-way traffic lights, before it heads north for a short distance more to end at another mini-roundabout on the B3107 on the western edge of Holt.
Originally the B3106 only ran between Trowbridge and Staverton but that route is quite different from the road's present route.
The road left the A361 Silver Street before passing the church and going up Timbrel Street to reach its current route. It then continued straight rather than zigzagging to enter Staverton along Wyke Road. It still met the B3105 in the same place, although this entrance has now been closed.
The Staverton to Holt section of the road was originally the B3108; it was presumably renumbered as an extension of the B3106 in 1935.
