B3141 Watchfield - Bawdrip

As can be seen from its length of 4.3 miles, the B3141 is a comparatively short route across the Somerset Levels. It runs roughly parallel to, and east of, the M5.

Woolavington

The B3141 starts at a triangular junction on the B3139 just a few hundred metres west of the Watchfield Inn and runs south past some farms and into Bason Bridge. The village takes its name from the crossing of the River Brue, Bason Bridge, which is a pinch point next to the factory site. It used to be even worse, as the Somerset and Dorset Railway ran along the north bank of the river, crossing at a level crossing, and even after the rest of the line was closed by Beeching the branch to the factory survived into the 1970s.

Bason Bridge gives way to East Huntspill, a slightly larger village strung out along the roadside, with two right turns leading back to West Huntspill on the A38 on the far side of the motorway and railway line. At the end of the village, a double bend at Cote Corner takes us out onto Huntspill Moor, part of the Somerset Levels, quickly crossing the man made Huntspill River at Woolavington Bridge. The road then crosses Woolavington Level to reach the low ridge of the Polden Hills beyond, entering Woolavington just before it climbs sharply up the hill. After weaving through the village, the road ends on the A39 Polden Road at Bawdrip.
