|Route outline (key)|
The road started on the A461 in the Market Place at Great Bridge. It headed east and soon crossed the River Tame; presumably this is the bridge named ("Great" appears to be a corruption of "Grit" as there are no wide watercourses in this part of the country). The Walsall Canal was crossed soon afterwards and the road continued along Great Bridge Street, now lined with light industry.
The road soon reached Swan Village and continued along the residential Dudley Street. After crossing the Wolverhampton Low Level to Birmingham Snow Hill railway line (now the Midland Metro) the road ended at Carter's Green on the original route of the A41 into West Bromwich.
With the building of the parallel A41, the A4035 was declassified, except for a short section in Swan Village which is the mainline of the B4149. The new A41 runs adjacent to Dudley Street whilst Great Bridge Street is further away.
