Fernham Road turns off left from Coxwell Road, just past Highworth Road. Once upon a time the road to Fernham, Uffington and other villages below the White Horse, but now cut off by the bypass which opened in 1979. A road branches off to the left providing access to the Marlborough Gardens housing estate and connects with Park Road. The secondary school, leisure centre, and Coxwell Lodge Nursing Home are located further up the road.
