|Route outline (key)|
The B3271 was the main road into Fowey from the west.
It started on the A390 to the west of St Blazey Gate (now on the edge of St Austell) and headed east. Owing to the line of the coast it detoured via Par and then continued east to Newtown Crossroads. Here it headed southeast into Fowey along Polvillion Road. It ended by the Town Quay on the B3270 (which it had already met at Newtown Crossroads).
Most of the road was upgraded to Class I status early on. The section between Par and Fowey had become the A3082 by 1932, leaving only the road from St Blazey Gate to Par numbered B3271. This section was renumbered A3084 in the early 1930s and then also became part of the A3082 in 1935. The section between Newtown Crossroads and Fowey has since been downgraded to become the B3415, although the classified road no longer reaches the Town Quay.
