Route outline (key)
B3209 Churchstow - West Alvington
The former B3209 (left) meets the former B3197 (both roads now part of the A381) at Langworthy's Barn near West Alvington

From 1922 until 1935 the road running southsoutheastward from Bantham Cross on the A379 west of Churchstow to a junction with the Kingsbridge – Salcombe section of the B3197 near West Alvington was classified as the B3209.

It was subsequently renumbered as a branch of the main B3197, and when the original course of the latter came to be reclassified (in around 1960) as an extension of the A381, the branch retained its B3197 classification and numbering. In the 1970s it spent a short time with Class I status but quickly returned to the B3197 for no apparent reason.

Since then, however, the Churchstow to West Alvington route has reverted to being considered a branch of the main Kingsbridge – Salcombe road (the A381), although now, of course, with the status of an A-road.
