The B3373 is an urban road in the northern suburbs of Plymouth. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.
The route starts at the roundabout junction with the B3413 that stops the A386/B3413 junction being a cloverleaf. It heads northwest along Budshead Road to a mini-roundabout on the edge of a grassed area, where it turns right (route unsigned).
Now on Tamerton Foliot Road the B3373 goes through a cutting and then becomes residential once more. It descends to a short dualled section at the junction with Southway Drive, whose two carriageways are very spread out, giving the impression of its being an abandoned GSJ – although the terrain and lack of any other significant features suggest that this is merely coincidence. Continuing west there's a brief tree-lined semi-rural section before the B3373 enters Tamerton Foliot and ends at a sharp left-hand bend, the continuation of the road being now unclassified.
Originally the B3373 continued for another mile and a half through the village centre and out again along Station Road (a journey which currently requires a TOTSO left from Fore Street). It ran along the northern edge of Tamerton Lake (an inlet of the Tamar) to end at Tamerton Foliot station on the Tamar Valley railway line. Although the line still exists the station has gone, but it took until around 1990 for the road leading there to be declassified; it is now little more than a metalled track.
