The B4077 is a rural B-road in north Gloucestershire.
It starts at the Teddington Hands roundabout where it meets the A435 and A46 (although that road only turned up here in 1995). A stone fingerpost now stands opposite the petrol station to the south of the junction; aerial photography suggests this is the original location of the crossroads.
The B4077 heads eastwards, passing very close to the Worcestershire border before moving away. Alderton is nearby and then the B4078 crosses. After going over the River Isbourne the B4077 skirts Toddington before reaching a roundabout on the B4632 (former A46). Just afterwards the road crosses the former Stratford upon Avon to Cheltenham line. This closed to passengers in the 1960s but a stretch has been reopened as the preserved Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway and the adjacent Toddington station is their HQ.
After passing Stanway House the style of the B4077 changes. It turns sharply right and begins to climb up into the Cotswolds. After reaching a summit at Stumps Cross it crosses a valley in the village of Ford (a bridge is provided for the B4077) before reaching another straight section, wooded at first.
After a few miles of attractive countryside with few buildings by the road the River Dikler is crossed at Upper Swell before the B4077 ends on the A424 a few yards north of its junction with the A429 in Stow on the Wold.
