The use of the B3123 number in Wells is only known from the DfT lists, where it is labelled as Reserved - Wells. The precise date of when the number was reserved is not known, with some similar listed uses being traced back to the 1960s. However, it is possible that it was seen as a relevant number for using in the city when the A39 and A371 were re-routed onto the relief roads in the 1990s. Whether the number would have been used for one of the former routes in the city centre, or the former A371 route south, which became a spur of the B3139, is obviously not known, and perhaps never will be.
