The C10 climbs steeply up Bathwick Hill from the A36 on the edge of Bath's city centre to the University at Claverton Down. It is a very busy route, being the main bus route between the city centre and university. The lower, steeper part of the hill is a wide road, and it has been known for slow moving buses to be overtaken legally by empty buses, particularly in the 'bus-wars' of the mid 1990s. At the east end of the route, the C10 actually diverts onto the quiet residential road of The Avenue, the mainline becoming a spur of the C8 along Oakley to Claverton Down Road, and so the university. The Avenue is now a dead end, but this reflects the old road layouts before the university was built, when it connected to Claverton Hill and dropped down to the village of Claverton. This section no longer appears to be a C road however.
