|Route outline (key)|
The B483 was a rural B-road in south Buckinghamshire.
It started on the A40 in the centre of High Wycombe and went north out of town, past Hughenden Manor, before turning east to climb Cryers Hill to Great Kingshill. It then headed vaguely eastwards through Little Kingshill before zigzagging to end on the A413 to the south of Great Missenden.
In the mid-1920s the northern half of the road was rerouted. The section through Little Kingshill was declassified and the road was rerouted from Great Kingshill via Prestwood to end in the centre of Great Missenden. This incarnation of the road did not last long either as by the late 1920s this had been upgraded to Class I status, becoming the A4128, which it remains.
