|Route outline (key)|
The B3235 was a short link road in Bideford.
Following construction of the new A39 bridge the old road was declassified and the B3235 with it. At this time the A386 was re-routed along the old A39 across the Long Bridge and along towards Instow as far as the A39 bypass, with the bypassed section of road apparently gaining the vacated B3235 number. The road therefore formed a key through route along the former A386 route between Bideford Long Bridge and the A39 Bideford Bypass.
The status of the road, however, is questioned. Almost all maps show it as the non-primary A386, and Devon County Council have no official record of it. However it was fully signed as the B3235, with no attempt was shown to change it until at least November 2011. The status of the road has now been questioned again following more signage changes. At the Westleigh Junction (A39/B3233) traffic for the primary A386 is now signed over the new bridge and along this road; the original B3235 signage elsewhere now seems to have disappeared.
