|Route outline (key)|
The B3118 is a short B-road in Bath which does what it says in the box! It connects the A36 Lower Bristol Road with the A367 Green Park Road, by using Midland Bridge Road across, yes! you've guessed it, Midland Bridge.
The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s, making it an early example of a recycled number. When it originally came into being the B3118 continued north along Charles Street to end on the A4016 (renumbered A367 in 1935) Monmouth Street. It was curtailed as part of the post-war reconstruction in this corner of Bath which saw the A367 re-routed along the river bank.
