|Route outline (key)|
The original route of the B3195 was along the right bank of the River Teign between Newton Abbot and Shaldon, providing a parallel to the A381 which ran along the left bank.
The road started on the original line of the A380 to the east of Newton Abbot; this point is almost exactly in the same place as today's Penn Inn Roundabout. After heading east through Buckland the road reached Combeinteignhead where it turned sharply northwards to reach the River Teign. It followed the river downstream, with a few bends, into Shaldon. It ended here on the A379 at the southern end of the Teignmouth and Shaldon Bridge.
The road survived into the 1980s but is now unclassified. It is possible the road lost its number when the A379 at the eastern end was downgraded (although that change has been reversed).
