B3133 Congresbury Bypass - Churchill

The B3133 is a semi-rural B-road across the North Somerset Levels.

We start in Clevedon and, while there is great confusion over the other B-roads in Clevedon (see B3124 for more info), the B3133's route is more clear cut. The modern mainline starts at M5 J20, running westwards across the new ring road to the town centre. Two spurs then link with Old Church Road from a roundabout with four exits, each of them the B3133! (The one heading north is the original B3133.)

Moor Lane, Clevedon

The main route runs southwards from the roundabout, crossing two more roundabouts by the new ring road, and then crossing the Blind Yeo River on the edge of the town. After a staggered crossroads, we cross a bridge over the M5 and pass through Kenn. To our west, and running roughly parallel to us is the long-gone Clevedon line of the GWR. Another roundabout marks the edge of Yatton, although the bulk of the town is the other side of the railway. After crossing the bridge, we continue down Yatton's High Street, before passing the Cadbury Garden Centre and reaching the traffic lights at the A370 in Congresbury.

A very short multiplex with the A370 takes us past the B3169 and over Congresbury Bridge, before we turn southwards down Congresbury's High Street. As we continue south out of the village, the roadside remains almost urban in places, with houses, farms and industrial development all the way to the mini-roundabout between Churchill and Lower Langford. Here we turn right onto the former A38, reaching that road on the Langford Bypass at Churchill.

A lot of the traffic using this road will then dog-leg to the left and use Says Lane to reach the A368, so avoiding the Churchill Crossroads.
