Over the A30

The B3260 follows the pre-bypass route of the A30 through Okehampton.

The road starts to the east of town at a very spread-out GSJ where the A30 crosses the unclassified road from Sticklepath which heads west as the B3260; this lower class road is the pre-bypass A30 in both directions. It soon reaches the outskirts of Okehampton, where it goes over the railway line and past an industrial estate as it heads west. The B3215 leaves to the right at traffic lights and then we run along East Street into the town centre.

We run along Fore Street, crossing the East Okement River, after which the road widens; this would have been for a market but now is simply tarmac. Market Street, the original line of the A386, turns off to the right at traffic lights after which we cross the West Okement and bear left onto New Road to climb out of town along a similar path to the river. After passing the remains of the castle, of which little is visible from the road, the road becomes the northern boundary of Dartmoor National Park.

Back in open country, the road winds above the river and across the fields before returning to the A30. The B3260 ends at a west-facing limited access GSJ, after which the road narrows and runs into Melton but no further.
