|Route outline (key)|
The A4154 was a short-lived A-road in east Herefordshire.
The road started on the A438 by the station to the north of Ledbury. The road went under the railway line immediately then headed along a winding road to the west of north. The only place of any size on this section was the tiny village of Staplow, before the road reached the B4214 and turned right.
Now heading northeastwards, the road ran through Bosbury before continuing along a winding road across undulating terrain. It passed a few tiny settlements before reaching the larger village of Westfield. The road ended at the far side on the A4103 near Ridgeway Cross.
The road north of Ledbury was originally the southern end of the B4214, whilst the road from there through Bosbury and Westfield was the B4218. The A4154 came into being after World War II but only lasted until the 1970s at the very latest before being downgraded again. The B4214 has now regained its southern end, whilst the remainder of the ex-A4154 is now part of the B4220.
