B4047 Asthall Barrow - Witney
This article is about the current B4047, the former A40 west of Witney.

Burford Road, near Asthall Barrow

The B4047 follows part of the pre-bypass A40 west of the Oxfordshire town of Witney.

The road starts at a roundabout at the western end of the bypass; the change is obvious for A40 traffic as the bypass is D2 whereas the old road is S2. The B4047 heads east, looking no different from the "old" A40 to the west, and soon bends sharply left to run above the River Windrush into Minster Lovell.

The road has the air of a bypass (although it and the A40 before it always followed this route even if the road has been upgraded) as it passes to the north of the suburbs and south of the old village centre. We soon reenter open country but after traffic lights to serve an industrial estate the road reaches the western suburbs of Witney. We run into town along Burford Road, with houses on the right and open fields on the left, ending shortly afterwards at a mini-roundabout where the A4095 comes in from the right and takes on the road ahead.
