B3347 Christchurch - Ringwood

Route

The B3347, a mile south of Ringwood.

The B3347 runs along the Avon Valley in south west Hampshire, and is mostly on the line on the former A338.

It starts from a roundabout at Purewell on the A35 Christchurch Bypass and heads north, going underneath the main Southampton - Bournemouth line through Burton to Winkton. From here, it passes through more open country through Sopley, where there is a one-way loop along the narrow streets, and Avon along the flood plain of the river of the same name. The road briefly enters the New Forest National Park at Bisterne. Beyond this, it continues on to Ringwood, running into the town centre. There's then a brief section of dual carriageway, and a grade-separated roundabout with the A31. The A338 resumes its course straight ahead.

History

The B3347 was originally created around 1st April, 1925. Starting on the original A35 in Christchurch it headed north for under 2 miles to end at Winkton on what was the A338.

In the 1970s, after the construction of the A338 Wessex Way, the B3347 took over the old route of the A338 north from this point as far as Ringwood.
