The B3216 is now a short link between two sections of the A3072 near Hatherleigh in Devon.
It starts on the A3072 at Jacobstowe and heads northwest for a couple of miles to end on the A386 to the south of Hatherleigh.
Originally the road was much longer. It continued east of Jacobstowe to the B3215 near North Tawton, whilst the west it continued as far as the A39 at Stratton near Bude in Cornwall, via multiplexes along the A386 at Hatherleigh and A388 at Holsworthy.
The Hatherleigh to Stratton section was upgraded to become the A3072 by 1927. The Jacobstowe to North Tawton section lasted longer, only becoming a part of the A3072 in the 1960s. The latter road took a longer route between Hatherleigh and Jacobstowe, thus leaving the current short length of the B3216.
