|Route outline (key)|
The B3372 runs along the pre-bypass route of the A38 before that road was diverted away from the Devon town of South Brent. However, it appears that the road was not renumbered directly from one to the other but spent a number of years unclassified, only gaining the B3372 number around 1990.
The route starts at the roundabout forming part of the grade-separated junction (GSJ) between the A38 and the A385 east of South Brent and heads southwest along the old course of the former road. It runs between fields and passes a few buildings before the speed limit drops as we enter the town.
We pass through the southeastern part of the town (the centre of which is accessible from a roundabout), along Exeter Road, a fairly wide and largely residential thoroughfare. We descend to cross the River Avon before re-entering open country and return to the A38 at a west-facing GSJ. After passing the eastbound offslip we go under the A38 and, at the next junction, the road becomes the westbound onslip.
