Route outline (key)
A4113 Bromfield - Knighton

The A4113 is a medium-length A-road on the border of England and Wales. Originally numbered B4366, it gained its current number in the mid-1920s.

The road starts on the A49 in Bromfield, a few miles northwest of Ludlow and just to the west of that road's bridge over the River Onny. It heads west through the village and starts climbing out of the river valley. After passing into Herefordshire the road goes over the top of a hill, round a hairpin bend known as the Fiddler's Elbow, and climbs again to a saddle where it is crossed by a minor road. The road then descends through a wood, with a steep drop to the left at one point, before levelling out to meet the B4385, which meets the road in two places.

Leintwardine Bridge

The road then reaches Leintwardine and heads south along the High Street, which has the air of being a back street. At the far end we cross the River Teme (into which the Onny flows), our route bears to the right, and then – a third of a mile or so later – TOTSOs right, with the A4110 continuing ahead. From this point the B4113 continues generally westward, following the Teme upstream.

After going through Brampton Bryan the valley gets very narrow. The B4367 turns off to the right and our road continues ahead, squeezing between high ground to our left and the river to our right before entering Wales. The route now becomes hillier, although still following the river upstream. A few buildings are passed but there are no more places of any size for a couple of miles until the road reaches Knighton. The road runs through the suburbs and bears right into Bridge Street, ending halfway along where the A488 TOTSOs.
