|Route outline (key)|
The B134 is a cross-country road in south County Armagh. It was originally unclassified but the B134 number came to the area in the late 1920s.
The road starts on the eastern side of Forkhill at the western end of the B113; the road heading south-east towards Dundalk from here is unclassified. We head north and the first road to the left heads into the village. To begin with, we head towards Slieve Gullion but then bear left to avoid it. We pass between the mountains and presently reach a T-junction on the B30. There's a short multiplex to the north on our northerly alignment, which ends when we turn left to enter Lislea.
We continue along the aptly named Mountain Road and run through a low pass before descending to reach the A25 at a staggered crossroads. The land is not as steep on the far side and we continue north along a narrow road along the side of a valley, then the central white line returns as we approach Whitecross. The road originally ended on the B124 at a crossroads on the northern side of the village but that road had been downgraded by 1946 so our road was extended north.
After crossing a small valley the road follows a winding route across undulating terrain. It goes round the eastern side of Shaw's Lake and then continues north. It crosses the Mowhan River before ending where the B78 comes in from the left and TOTSOs to take on the road ahead into Markethill.
