History

Wimborne in 1954

Before the A31 Wimborne Bypass was built, the road used to pass straight through the middle of this ancient town. The A341 also continued into the town, the two meeting just to the east of the town centre. Their routes (with a few minor deviations) now form part of the confused B3073 and the B3078.
