|Route outline (key)|
A rather curious piece of renumbering this. The B3160 is now part of the B3157, despite that route now having two parallel roads using the same number. The old B3160 started on the A35 in Bridport and headed south to meet the B3157 near Bothenhampton (approximately where the new bypass roundabout is) before ending at West Bay.
The current situation sees 2 parallel routes of the B3157 heading south from this roundabout, slowly diverging as they near the coast. The western arm enters West Bay, and then at the B3160's former terminus there is an unclassified road heading east to rejoin the B3157 on Burton Road. Very odd.
