|Route outline (key)
The road starts by turning off the A438 in the linear village of Three Cocks and heads northwestwards along a dead-straight road. The Welsh name for Three Cocks is Aberllynfi and we indeed soon cross the River Llynfi before bearing to the left. We are now in the flat Wye Valley; the river, invisible from here, is off to the right whilst the hills surrounding the valley can be seen in most directions.
The road runs upstream, getting as close to the river as it will do at Boxbush, where the Wye is just visible to the right. Road and river then diverge and the road follows a straightish route west, soon ending at a roundabout on the A479 to the south of Llyswen.
