Route outline (key)
A480 Lyonshall - King's Acre

The A48x group contains a couple of very long 3 digit A roads, but the A480 isn't one of them.

Route

Lyonshall - King's Acre

It starts on the A44 a few miles east of the Herefordshire town of Kington as a single carriageway non-primary route. It heads south east through Lyonshall, then meets the primary A4112 at Sarnsefield, near Weobley. Weobley itself, a few miles to the left, is worth the short detour - a well preserved black and white style village with a couple of good pubs.

The A480 at Upperton

Back on the A480, we continue towards Hereford, passing through thousands of acres of prime agricultural land. We pass RAF Credenhill before crossing Hereford's unofficial northern bypass, the A4103 Roman Road at Stretton Sugwas. Shortly after, we arrive at a T junction where we meet the A438 primary route into Hereford.
