|Route outline (key)|
The B3180 is a rural B-road in east Devon.
It starts 2.5 miles west of Ottery St Mary, at the southern roundabout of the Daisymount interchange with the A30 and B3174. From here it heads south, bypassing West Hill, which is the largest place on the route of the road.
The road crosses the A3052 at the Halfway Inn where there is a staggered crossroads and a 40 mph speed limit is involved. It then climbs to Woodbury Common where the B3179 comes in from the west. There then follows a "useless multiplex" in which the B3180 is the dominant number for over a mile further as far as Lympstone Common. Here there is a triangular junction where an unclassified road leads off to the right and the road ahead is the resumed B3179.
The reason for the useless multiplex is that the B3180 used to continue along the unclassified road to the right, signposted Exmouth and Lympstone. It ran via Withycombe Raleigh to end on the A376 on the northern edge of Exmouth.
