B3253 Liskeard - Polperro
This article is about the original B3253 running north of Looe.

.
the A387 (former B3253) in the Looe Valley

The B3253 was the original number of the road connecting Liskeard with the coast.

It started on the A389 in the centre of town and headed south into the valley of the East Looe River, before climbing up the other side to serve St Keyne and Duloe. It then returned to the river valley near Sandplace and followed it to East Looe.

The road crossed the bridge into West Looe before detouring to Barcelona (not that one!) to avoid narrow valleys closer to the coast. It then went through Crumplehorn to end on Fore Street in Polperro.

The section of road between Sandplace and Polperro was upgraded to become a western extension of the A387 by the start of the 1930s. The rest became a southern extension of the B3254 in 1935, freeing up the number for use nearby.

The final section into Polperro is now unclassified as the narrow streets of the town are unsuitable for a Class I road.
