|Route outline (key)|
The B3225 is a short but very picturesque route from Porlock village down to the small harbour at Porlock Weir. It has remained almost unchanged in every sense since it was first classified in 1922. The road is narrow for much of the way as it twists between high hedges.
In Porlock, the junction with the A39 is at the bottom of the start of the notorious Porlock Hill, and better approached from the East. At the Harbour end, the road finishes at a large car park (pay and display), from where it is possible to join the South West Coast Path and walk to Culbone, the UK's smallest and most remote Parish Church. Onward travellers may wish to take the narrow toll road which climbs up through woodland to rejoin the A39 above Oare.
