B3353 Corsham – Shaw
Edge of Whitley

The B3353 is a short B-road in west Wiltshire. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.

The route starts at a mini-roundabout on the A4 in Corsham and heads east along the residential Pickwick Road into the town centre. After passing the end of the High Street and a couple of mini-roundabouts later the road squeezes through South Place to reach a mini-roundabout where it turns right. A gateway to Corsham Court, now a mere pedestrian path, is just to the left.

Heading south, the road reaches its fifth mini-roundabout and then shortly afterwards crosses the Great Western Main Line, and the buildings become more intermittent before we reach the village of Gastard. The comically short 40 limit along this section of the road used to be longer, however the limit along much of the road was reduced to 30 along much of the previous section sometime in the early 2010's, which considering how narrow the road gets here and the fact that there's no pavement means that the reduction was probably quite well justified. There's a sharp right-hand bend by the pub and soon we reach open country. There's a view over the valley of the River Avon ahead but the road does not descend as steeply as might be expected. The road then runs past Whitley, which is separated by a golf course and a couple of fields from Shaw. The road ends at a signalised TOTSO on the A365 by the church.
