The Vauxhall Conference season of 1994–95 was the sixteenth season of the Conference National.

Overview[edit]

Macclesfield Town finished the season as Conference champions, but failed to gain Football League status as their stadium failed to meet the capacity requirements. This meant that the bottom placed Third Division club, Exeter City, avoided relegation to the Conference.
