B4069 Lyneham Banks

Lyneham Banks landslip information and ongoing updates

In February 2022, a major landslip occurred on the B4069 at Lyneham Banks. The landslide continued until significant movement ceased later in 2022, when approximately 70 metres of the B4069 had been dislocated and transported about 25 metres downslope.

Following a period of significantly reduced ground movement during summer 2022 we were able to access the site and begin intrusive ground investigations, which has allowed us to consider options for repairing the road. 

You can receive updates about Lyneham Banks by signing up to the Wiltshire Council newsletter (opens new window), and ticking the box for Lyneham Banks.


Ground Investigations took place at the end of 2022, and the information has helped Wiltshire Council to gain a better understanding of how the land failed and to develop design options for repairing the road. A copy of the factual Ground Investigation Report can be found in the downloads section of this page.
