.... And the A420 from Chippenham to Swindon? Doesn't exist. UK road numbers are weird.

(checks on 1947 map....)

That section used to be the A420, but is now A3102 and B4069.
Thanks.  :thumbsup: I thought there must be some explanation like that, but wouldn't have known which roads.

And the A3102 from Wootton Basset to the M4 is also a horrible road, as is the B4005 from there to Wroughton. But difficult to avoid except by going up Broadtown (puff, gasp) Hill and adding quite a few extra miles.
I do not ride a great big Mercian, gangster tanwalls, fixed cog in the back.
