B3179 leaving Woodbury

The B3179 is a rural B-road in east Devon.

It leaves the A376 at a roundabout near Clyst St George and heads eastwards. It then proceeds via fairly flat East Devon countryside to Woodbury, which like much of the area is a commuter village for Exeter.

The B3179 then reaches a T-junction on the B3180 at Woodbury Common. It multiplexes south along the B3180 for over a mile across the common and round Black Hill.

Eventually a wooded area on Lympstone Common is met where there is a triangular junction. The B3180 ends here and the road ahead is the B3179 once more. This useless multiplex can be explained by the fact that the right turn, signposted Exmouth and Lympstone, was originally the B3180 but is now unclassified.

The B3179 continues southeastwards beyond Lympstone Common. This section of road was originally the B3178 but gained its current number in 1935. It passes no places of note and only a few scattered buildings before the road ends at a roundabout in Knowle on the current route of the B3178.
