St Stephen 3A starts from the (minimum traffic) service road adjacent to the A405 North Orbital Road and runs the short distance northeast to Manor Drive.

St Stephen 3A bridleway used to be numbered as part of bridleway 3.

At the time of the BHS 2021 Access Survey (18 Aug 21), no gates were across the path. It was signposted only at the southern end.
