The B3215 is a short link road running east from Okehampton in Devon.

Originally the B3215 started on the A377 at Copplestone and headed west via Bow to North Tawton. However, this road was upgraded to Class I status in the 1960s, becoming the A3072. The B3215 now, therefore, starts on the A3072 at Newland Cross to the south of North Tawton, where the A3072 has to TOTSO.

Heading west from here, the B3215 runs more-or-less straight for the first mile or so. It goes under then over the Dartmoor Railway; the second crossing is by Sampford Courtenay station (which appears to be in the middle of nowhere; the village of that name is over a mile to the north).

The road now becomes more winding and climbs Appledore Hill. It enters Okehampton where it ends on the B3260 (pre-bypass A30) in the centre of town.
