|Route outline (key)|
The B3261 was the main road into Bude from the south.
It started on the A39 and ran into town to end on the near side of the town centre at the same point as the B3260 (later A3072). Some maps suggest that it was later extended from this point further into Bude.
The road is still marked as an un-numbered B road in the 1938 edition of Newnes Motorists Touring Map but it is marked as the A3073 in the 1946 Ordnance Survey Ten-Mile Road Map of Great Britain, which is its current number. The western end, if it ever did move, has now returned to its original point.
