The former B4069 (now A419) descending into Chalford

The B4069 was the direct route between the Gloucestershire towns of Cirencester and Stroud.

The road started on the A419 on the southern edge of Cirencester. It headed west avoiding the town centre and quickly crossed the A429. Continuing west, it crossed the Cotswolds before ending on the A46 in the centre of Stroud.

The importance of the road was soon obvious and it was quickly upgraded to Class I status, being renumbered the A4116 in the mid-1920s. In the renumberings of 1935 the A419 was diverted on its route north of Cirencester and took over the entire route of the A4116.

The ex-B4069 is still part of the A419, except at both ends where the road has been bypassed.
