|Route outline (key)|
The A4141 is a section of the former A41 running between junction 5 of the M42 on the eastern side of Solihull and the A4177 at Five Ways, approximately halfway between Knowle and Warwick. The road dates from the downgrading of the A41 as far as Bicester following the opening of the M40 in the 1990s, with the number presumably chosen to show the road's former numbering.
The A41 disappears on meeting the M42 and the A4141 continues south. It starts off urban, as it runs through the villages of Copt Heath and Knowle, meeting the B4101 at a staggered crossroads in the latter. The road then reaches open country and bends sharply left at Rotten Row, crossing the Grand Union Canal soon after.
After another mile or so the road leaves the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull as it passes through the village of Baddesley Clinton. Given that the last section hasn't been particularly metropolitan there isn't really any change on the ground. The road then passes to the north of Hay Wood and the grounds of Wroxall Abbey, now a hotel, before ending at a roundabout on the A4177 near Five Ways. That road now continues ahead along the ex-A41 towards Warwick.
