Route outline (key)
B3221 Tiverton - South Molton
The now-unclassified ex-B3221 near Tiverton

The number B3221 was given to the direct route between Tiverton and South Molton in Devon. It seems strange that this road was given Class II status but the Class I road connecting the two towns (the A373, now the B3137) ran to the south along a longer - and not necessarily easier - route. Perhaps the roads were classified according to use, with the B3221 seeing less traffic.

The question is now only academic as the B3221 was declassified in the 1980s with the construction of the parallel A361 North Devon Link Road. It is interesting that the new road runs along the line of the B3221 and not the A373.
