The Hop Pole on Gloucester Road (B4633) in Cheltenham
The B4633 is a short link road, just over a mile long, connecting the A40 to the A4019 on the western side of Cheltenham town centre. It is an important inner distributor road serving, amongst other places, the town's railway station and also acts as a diversionary route for vehicles on the A4019 too high to pass below the former railway bridge which still crosses Cheltenham High Street. The B4633 route number itself is not displayed; however, there is – unusually for a simple signalized intersection with an unclassified road – a named junction near the road's northern end: River Chelt Junction, where the recently developed Honeybourne Way, serving a superstore, meets Gloucester Road.
The road was numbered B4076 in the original 1922 Road Lists and later became an extension of the B4075. It gained its present number following the rerouting of the A40 along the former route of the B-road to the south of the town centre.
