|Route outline (key)|
The B3354, a semi-rural B-road in south Hampshire, is the erstwhile A3051 (and before that the B3036, downgraded as part of a general renumbering exercise following the arrival of the M3 and M27 in the area.
The road starts off next to Botley Mill on the A334 High Street and heads north. After heading through nice suburban houses, it crosses the railway and enters more rural territory, passing the Botley Park Hotel. The B3342 is met at a roundabout, and then there's a steady trickle of housing again along Horton Heath before arriving in the centre of Fair Oak. There's a brief multiplex with the B3037 here through town, with our road dominant.
On the other side, houses give way to farmland again, while there's a junction to the right with the B2177. The remainder of this route is the old A333 as far as the B3335 (the old A335), which takes up the baton through Twyford and on to the M3.
