|Route outline (key)|
The B3248 is a V-shaped road on the Hartland Peninsula in Devon, linking Hartland itself to the A39. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number around 1980.
The road starts on the A39 at Clovelly Dykes, just to the west of that road's junction with the B3237. To begin with it heads north but there's a sharp left-hand bend very quickly and the road now starts to head roughly westwards. We follow a winding course across the fields and presently descend into Hartland. The road becomes narrower as we approach the village centre.
We run into Fore Street and then TOTSO left by the Anchor Inn. The road ahead becomes one-way straight away; it continues west out of the village and through Stoke to Hartland Quay. Meanwhile the B3248 heads south out of town, becoming rural very quickly. After crossing a small valley we climb back to the open fields and only then does the road become S2 once more. The route back to the A39 is shorter than the outward route: after a few sharp bends the road splits with two short branches leading to T-junctions on the A39.
