|Route outline (key)|
The A4172 is a short A-road running along a Roman road west of the Herefordshire town of Ledbury. It was originally part of the B4215 and gained its current number after 1975. However, despite starting on the A417 and having a similar number, it has never been part of that road.
The road starts as the southern extension of the A417 at Trumpet (a signalised crossroads named after the pub), where that road starts its multiplex along the A438. The A4172 heads southeastwards along a straight and not particularly eventful road. It passes through the tiny villages of Pixley and Little Marcle and then crosses the border into Gloucestershire. It ends at the Preston Cross roundabout on the A449, with the remnant of the B4215 continuing ahead.
