|Route outline (key)|
The B3368 is a short road through Locking, a small village near Weston-super-Mare, following the former route of the A371. The latter's new route seems to have been built in the mid- to late 1930s, providing a bypass to Locking, and the B3368 took over its old route straight away.
It seems unusual to use a B-number in such a way but it was quite common at the time. The loop marked on maps has not always been all the B3368, but is now a one-way system to relieve some narrow roads; the westbound route is the original road, whilst the eastbound route, which has to TOTSO twice, was originally built to serve a modern housing estate.
