Route: Cheltenham Spa Town Road
The Hop Pole on Gloucester Road (B4633) in Cheltenham
The B4633 is a short (just over a mile long) link road connecting the A40 to the A4019 on the western side of Cheltenham town centre. In the original 1922 road-numbering scheme it was known as the B4076. It is an important inner distributor road serving, amongst other places, the town's railway station and also acts as a diversionary route for vehicles on the A4019 too high to pass below the former railway bridge which still crosses Cheltenham High Street. The B4633 route number itself is not displayed; however, there is – unusually for a simple signalized intersection with an unclassified road – a named junction near the road's northern end: River Chelt Junction, where the recently developed Honeybourne Way, serving a new superstore, meets Gloucester Road.
