B4494 Newbury – Wantage
Farnborough Downs

The B4494 is a rural B-road in west Berkshire. Originally unclassified, it gained its number around 1930.

The route starts at a roundabout on the A4 Western Avenue to the north of Newbury town centre. From here it heads north along Oxford Road and soon crosses the two channels of the River Lambourn before going through Donnington, now part of the same urban area as Newbury. At a mini-roundabout traffic for the M4 and Oxford bears right whilst the B4494 bears left. The tree-lined route goes over the A34, then passes through a wood before descending to go under the M4.

We climb again to the northwest and continue across undulating fields. Our route takes us through no places of any size for a few miles, although there are a few village just off the road. After going over a ridge we cross the Ridgeway and then descend into the Vale of the White Horse. The descent gets steeper as we approach Wantage. After entering town along Chain Hill the road ends at a T-junction on the B4507 to the south of the town centre.
