Route outline (key)
B4163 Bilston - Princes End
(A4037) Princes End - Summer Hill
B4163 Summer Hill - Dudley Port

The B4163 is a completely urban B-road, heading through the Black Country between the towns of Bilston, Wolverhampton, and Dudley Port, Sandwell - the latter not to be confused with nearby Dudley!

B4163 at Summer Hill

The route starts just southeast of Bilston town centre, at a light-controlled junction with the A41 before heading southwest then south through the northern reaches of the Black Country, where one small town merges into another seamlessly and non-locals get completely and utterly confused as to just where they are. In this first section of the road, the existence of Loxdale Midland Metro stop is the height of excitement and awe as the road passes through a small industrial area, then a few houses, then another small industrial area before passing over the route of the old Wolverhampton - Dudley rail line at the site of Daisy Bank station.

Finally, another classified route is reached: the B4483 off towards Coseley and the A4123 Wolverhampton - Birmingham New Road; though the B4163 itself continues on a little further through more medium-low quality housing before seemingly terminating on the A4037 in Princes End. In 1922 it really did end here.

Through Tipton

However, about half a mile to the east along the A4037, the B4163 suddenly re-appears and continues southwards once more, heading through Tipton, with the B4517 being met at a roundabout junction, before finally terminating on the A461 and, to keep with the railway theme, very near to Dudley Port station.
