Route

Hales Road becomes Priors Road

The B4075 is an L-shaped road in Cheltenham.

It starts at a roundabout on the A435 by the racecourse and heads east along New Barn Lane which, although a residential road, becomes semi-rural at one point with views over the Cotswolds to the south.

Presently the B4075 reaches a double mini-roundabout on the B4632 (former A46) in Prestbury, a village that guards its independence from Cheltenham strongly. There is a short multiplex west along the B4632 before the B4075 regains its number by turning south. It goes along Priors Road before crossing a double mini-roundabout onto Hales Road.

The B4075 ends at traffic lights on the eastern side of Cheltenham town centre, where it meets the A40 and A435.

History

The B4075 ran to the west of the town centre at one time

Originally the B4075 only ran from the A40 to the A46 in Prestbury. It was later extended west to reach the racecourse. It also appears to have been extended in the other direction to reach Lansdown Road and from there along the course of the B4076 to reach the A4019 High Street. This southern extension is now the mainline of the A40 with the section beyond Lansdown Road now the B4633.
