Over the years, Chamberlain Street in Wells has had a variety of numbers. From classification in 1922 until the mass renumberings of 1935, it was the B3137. In that year it appears to have been renumbered as part of the extended B3139. Then sometime in the late 1950s or early 60s, it was upgraded to be an A road. Whether it was the A371 or A39 is uncertain, as the two had a number of spurs in the city, which were effectively melded into a partly one-way multiplex ring road in later years.
Today, with the Wells Relief roads taking the traffic out of the city centre, Chamberlain Street is unclassified.
