|Route outline (key)|
The B4035 is a long B-road in the south Midlands.
It starts on the A361 at Banbury Cross and heads west out of town. It crosses the unclassified western bypass at a roundabout before entering open country. The first village is Broughton, where the road crosses the Sor Brook then goes on to Tadmarton and Swalcliffe. After a few hills and a change of county it goes through Lower and Upper Brailes before descending steeply.
After a fairly flat couple of miles the road crosses a narrow bridge over the River Stour into Shipston-on-Stour. There is a gyratory in the middle of town and the B4035 multiplexes along the A3400 round this before continuing west, leaving town along West Street. Over a mile later it crosses the A429 Fosse Way at a staggered crossroads.
The road climbs into Gloucestershire before descending to cross the London-Hereford railway line and enter Chipping Campden. A one-way system starts by the church which leads to the B4081. Westbound B4035 traffic turns right here, passing the street leading eastwards on the B4035. The B4035 is now the dominant partner in the multiplex which lasts through the village until the B4081 turns off to the right. Our road descends one of the steep Cotswold hills to reach Aston-sub-Edge and the B4632. Although that road TOTSOs it is the dominant partner in the multiplex (in fairness, it used to be the A46) to the next village of Weston-sub-Edge, where the B4035 TOTSOs right to regain its number.
After changing county again the road goes through Bretforton before heading through the north of Badsey, where it TOTSOs left on meeting the B4085. We cross the Badsey Brook before meeting a roundabout on the A46 Evesham bypass.
The road continues into town along Elm Road and Port Street. It then TOTSOs left at traffic lights just before the River Avon before following the river to end at traffic lights on the A4184. Straight ahead is the B4084.
