A361 A3123 B3343

A roundabout at the junction of the A361, A3123 and the B3343 south of Ilfracombe. Named after a farming hamlet just north of the roundabout. This would have originally been a simple crossroads but appears to have been converted into a roundabout in the 1960s as was shown as such on the OS 1967 one inch map. The A3123 was the B3343 in earlier history, (and unclassified in 1922), but was renumbered as the A3123 in 1991. As of 2019, a sign from the remaining B3343 section still suggested it remained as such. The B3343 route remaining was actually an extension of that road, the road originally being unclassifed, but gaining the number by 1932. This junction will be considerably busier during the holiday periods because of traffic for the coast and in particular Woolacombe. Business has grown up around the originally very rural junction. There is an industrial estate just along the A3123 and a holdiay park plus eatery, just off the roundabout.
