Heading southwest on the A30 (former B3379)

The B3379 was a short road in north Hampshire. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the late 1920s.

The road started on the A33 immediately south of North Waltham and headed west to meet the B3049 near Micheldever station. It then continued southwestwards over the River Dever to cross the A34 in Sutton Scotney and then follow a dead-straight road over Chilbolton Down. After bending to the right the road descended into the valley of the River Test where it ended on the A3057 at Stockbridge.

On 1 April 1933, following the opening of the Basingstoke bypass, it was upgraded to become a part of the A30, allowing that route to bypass both Basingstoke and Andover.

Today, the eastern end of the former B3379 is part of the A303 where it forms a "useless multiplex" from the M3 to Micheldever, whilst the section just west of that is unclassified.
