Route

Fore Street

This is really rather easy to describe, as the B3175 consists only, and entirely of High Street and Fore Street in Sidmouth. However, it wasn't always that short!

History

The original length of the B3175 in 1923

The original start point for the B3175 was at Sidford Crossroads on the then A35, now A3052. However, at some point in the 1990s the A375 was extended south from Sidford right to the front in Sidmouth, completely wiping out the B3175. More recently, for whatever reason, the A375 has been cut back to at least its junction with All Saints Road, to the south of which one-way systems are now in operation. Rather than simply extending the B3176 along this short stretch, as may have seemed more sensible to many, the B3175 number has been resurrected and returned to its original route.

However, this may not be the end of the story, as some maps show that the B3175 number has been reinstated along its entire original length, as far as Sidford.
