|Route outline (key)|
The B3289 is part of the most direct route from Truro to St Mawes.
It starts out at a T-junction with the A3078 in St Just in Roseland on the Roseland Peninsula, running in a northerly direction as a single-carriageway road passing no places of any size. After a couple of miles it turns sharply left to head west to the River Fal, then following the river inland for a short distance before reaching the slipway to the King Harry Ferry.
Reappearing on the far side of the River Fal at Trelissick, the B3289 zigzags its way up from the river, then continues west past the National Trust's Trelissick Garden. Within a little over a mile we reach a crossroads at which the way ahead leads to the strangely named settlement of Come-to-Good. The B3289, however, TOTSOs right here and heads north once more for over a mile to reach a roundabout on the A39 at another strangely named settlement, Playing Place – which is where the route ends.
