The B169 runs along The Ridgeway in Chingford, Essex. The road was originally unclassified but gained the B169 number in the mid-1920s, making it an early example of a recycled number.
The road starts at a roundabout on the A112 on the edge of Mansfield Park. The B169 starts by heading east along The Ridgeway, a wide residential road with a verge on the left. After passing the Ridgeway Hotel the road bends to the left at a triangular junction with Endlebury Road. It now follows a northeastward course past the former Chingford Town Hall to its terminus at traffic lights on the A110.
