Approaching Farmoor on the B4044 (former A4141)

The A4141 was a short A-road to the west of Oxford.

Starting on the A34 to the south of South Hinksey the road headed northwest along what is now the Oxford Ring Road until it met the original line of the A420 in Botley. There was a short multiplex west through the village before the A4141 regained its number. It ran northwestwards to Farmoor before turning more northerly to cross the Swinford toll bridge over the River Thames. The road then ran through the centre of Eynsham, leaving town along Witney Road before ending on the A40.


The A4141 number was first allocated to the southwestern section of the Oxford Ring Road, from Botley to South Hinksey. This was officially opened on 28 June 1932. It was entirely S2 when built and ended at T-junctions at both ends

Later in the 1930s it was extended to part of the former line of the A40 after that road was moved onto the Oxford northern bypass. It took on the section west of Botley (with the former A40 east of here becoming an extension of the A420). Around 1960 the bypass was extended north, with the old T-junction at the northern end bypassed (it still exists), allowing the A34 to vacate the centre of Oxford and so the A4141 lost its southern extension. Due to this being the oldest bit of purpose-built A34 between the M3 and the M40 (with the possible exception of a tiny section of the Winchester Bypass at its southern end), it is not surprisingly the most congested even though it has been dualled since A4141 days.

This was the beginning of the end of the A4141 as it wasn't long before the road disappeared completely, with the original section becoming the B4044. It remains this number even though Eynsham has now been bypassed.
