A3049: 1898 and today
Above is the OS 1:2,500 map of Winton dated 1898. The red markings were drawn by the borough architect in about 1905-10. The A3049 crosses east-west, through the word 'Malmesbury Farm' on the map � faint pencil marks can be seen denoting the current road. The north-south road, Wimborne Road, was the A347 until re-routed about � mile west in the late 1980s.
Below is the junction as it looks today � called Winton Banks, we are looking roughly north from the building of Malmesbury Farm shown on the map.
