|Route outline (key)|
The B3302 is an inland road in west Cornwall.
It climbs away from Hayle on Foundry Hill, giving a clue to the town's industrial past. Then it's past some newer suburbs of bungalows before reaching the end of town and a national speed limit sign. Immediately it crosses above the aforementioned A30 bypass, although there is no junction here. An abandoned garage is on the right.
It's then into open country and a pleasant drive on a fairly straight section of road. There is a 40 mph limit for the hamlet of St Erth Praze. It does have a pub, though: the Old Smugglers Inn. Back into open country, the 40 mph limit persists before being replaced by the NSL. This doesn't last long though as there is another 40 mph limit through the next hamlet, Fraddam. There's no pub here, but there is a local garage (that no longer sells fuel). Fraddam is quickly left behind as is the speed limit but it's not completely open countryside ahead: there is a large food storage warehouse on the left and Leedstown Cricket Club on the right.
Leedstown itself isn't a town at all, but a village on a crossroads with a pub and village store. The crossroads is with the B3280, which has priority. The village is protected by a 30 mph limit.
The B3302 passes into open countryside once more and then there's a section with high hedges and trees as the road drops down to cross a stream. Two sharp deviations are here and afterwards the road is generally more twisty. It's then open and straightish again for a couple of further miles before we pass the southern end of the B3303 which comes in from the left at a fork. A mile or so after this the road itself terminates at a T-junction on the primary A394 to the west of Helston at Sithney Common.
