A4101 Ashwood - Dudley

The A4101 runs from the A449 south of Wall Heath, Staffordshire via Kingswinford, Pensnett and Russell's Hall hospital into Dudley town centre.

In the original 1922 road numbering scheme, it was allocated the number B4177 before being upgraded to A4101 in April 1925.

The road starts right on the edge of the urban area and metropolitan borough on the A449. To the west are open fields but the A4101 heads east. It remains semi-rural for a short distance, becoming wholly built up at a signalised crossroads where it meets the B4178. The road continues east through Kingswinford, crossing the A491 at traffic lights and zigzagging through the eastern suburbs to reach the Pensnett Trading Estate.

Pensnett High Street

The road becomes residential once more as we run through Pensnett itself, after which we pass a hospital and reach a roundabout where we turn left and follow a D2 road to a further roundabout on the A461. When originally classified the A4101 ended here but after the A461 was moved onto the Dudley bypass we have taken over its old route. We therefore cannon off the other road and become S2 once again as we head into town along Stourbridge Road. After passing the cemetery we cross the B4177 at traffic lights. A short distance further on, at another set of lights at the southern end of Dudley High Street, the A4101 ends on the B4587. Traffic from this direction may only continue on further into town.
