The original B3387 was a very short link in Warminster, Wiltshire, cutting a little off the corner from the A350 to the A36, and so avoiding the junction where the two met. The name The Close here does not mean dead end, but rather refers to the lowly status of the road as a glorified back entrance to other properties, albeit with a chapel and schools squeezed in. It was presumably declassified when the bypass opened, easing traffic in the town centre considerably. Today it is one way southbound.
