Heading north

The second incarnation of the B3278 dates to the mid-1920s, when a previously unclassified road road on the edge of Dartmoor was raised to Class II status.

The road started on the A30 in the centre of the village of Bridestowe and headed southwards along Station Road. It climbed out of the village and followed a narrow road lined with hedges. The road passed a few scattered buildings and presently went over the Okehampton to Plymouth railway line above Bridestowe station, which closed in the 1960s. It ended shortly afterwards at a T-junction on the A386.

The road survived the closure of Bridestowe station, presumably its raison d'être, and also survived the construction of the first A30 Bridestowe bypass, when the road was extended north a short distance. However, the road had been declassified by 1991 and the present A30 runs even further away from Bridestowe.
