|Route outline (key)|
The road starts at a TOTSO on the A452 to the north of Meer End; the A4177 takes that road's traffic and also its primary status and heads southwestwards through Meer End itself. It continues across largely flat terrain to bypass the village of Haseley Knob and reach a roundabout on the A4141. That road is fairly obviously the old route of the A41 and now the A4177 bears left to take on its next section. When originally classified in the 1970s the A4177 ended here.
The road heads south and gradually bears round to the left. The B4439 comes in from the right, after which the road goes through Hatton, the largest place on the entire route. However, the majority of the village lies off to the left (much built on the site of an old hospital) so the road is not lined with houses for long. There's a roundabout serving the housing estate before we meet Ugly Bridge Road and reenter open country. After a set of traffic lights for Warwick Parkway station we reach a roundabout GSJ on the A46 Warwick bypass, where the A4177 ends. The A425 continues ahead along the old A41.
