Route

Tollbooth, Swinford Bridge

The B4044 is a short B-road west of Oxford.

The road starts at a roundabout junction with the B4449 southeast of Eynsham and in little over 600 m crosses the Thames at Swinford Toll Bridge (where the toll has remained fixed at 5p for at least thirty years). Running south between Beacon Hill to the left and the Thames to the right, the route curves southeastward past Farmoor Reservoir, then crosses open countryside to a north-facing half-diamond with the A420, continuing into Botley, passing under the A34, and terminating at traffic lights where the A420 is met again.

History

The B4044 follows the original route of the A40 from Eynsham to Oxford. When the northern bypass was built in the 1930s, it carried the number A4141, although the section through Botley itself became the A420.
