|Route outline (key)|
The B3298 runs through the former mining area to the east of Redruth.
The road originally started on the A392 (later A390) at Scorrier. However, the A390 now bypasses the area, so the B3298 has been extended west along the pre-bypass road to meet the A3047 (former A30) at a roundabout.
Heading east, the B3298 TOTSOs right in Scorrier at what was its original northern end. It continues southeast and south through a wood before bypassing St Day to the east (as it always has done). The next village is Carharrack, after which the road goes through another wood to end on a bend on the A393 at Comford.
