The B4014 is a medium-length B-road in the Cotswolds. The road was originally the northern half of the A434 and got its number in the 1970s.

The road starts on the A429 Malmesbury eastern bypass and runs along the northern bypass before rejoining the old road on the northern side of town. It now heads north across the fields and soon crosses the Fosse Way, only a track at this point, which marks the county boundary. After skirting the southern edge of Long Newnton the road makes a beeline for Tetbury. After crossing the infant River Avon it climbs steeply up Fox Hill then zigzags along Silver Street to reach the Market House, where the A433 comes in from the left at a mini-roundabout. There's a multiplex straight ahead along Long Street before the A433 turns right and the A4135 comes in from the left. The B4014 regains its number by taking the road between the two.

We leave town along Hampton Street and then zigzag through Tetbury Upton before descending the steep Tetbury Hill into Avening. There's a hairpin to the left at the bottom and then we follow the High Street to cross a couple of streams. The road then continues along the valley bottom following the Nailsworth Stream.

The road is now winding and wooded and so the Gatcombe Water cannot be seen. Eventually the trees give way to buildings and the road merges into Nailsworth. The road ends in the town centre at a T-junction on the A46.
