|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at the unusually shaped Peartree Junction at the western end of the Ashburton bypass; the eastbound onslip here follows the route of the A38 here after the Ashburton bypass was built but before the Buckfastleigh bypass was built. After passing a petrol station there's a sharp TOTSO right and we follow the narrow road into Ashburton itself, a reason why this was one of the earlier places to be bypassed on this road.
The road soon becomes built-up and we run along West Street and East Street through the town centre and back into the suburbs. Presently the spread-out Linhay Hill Junction is reached, where we return to the A38 over some distance. The eastbound onslip joins whilst the road is still residential, then the road bends round to the right to serve the eastbound slip roads. However, maps show the B3352 turning left here to continue through the eastern suburbs of town, turning into the eastbound onslip after nearly half a mile.
