|Route outline (key)|
The B4027 was one of the many numbers assigned to a road heading east of Coventry. This was originally the B4111, then became the A4114 in the 1940s and A427 in the 1960s. By the 1990s the road had gained the B4027 number, presumably for continuity, but as the number was already in use elsewhere it was renumbered B4428 in the 2000s and remains this number.
Starting on the B4082 on the eastern side of Coventry the road headed east and passed Combe Abbey before meeting the B4029 on the near side of Brinklow. In the centre of the village it met the B4455 and had to TOTSO left to become the dominant number in a multiplex north back into open country. After crossing the canal and railway line the B4027 bore right at the end of the multiplex and passed through Stretton under Fosse and over the M6 to reach the B4112. There was then another multiplex, again with the B4027 dominant, into Pailton.
The multiplex ended on the village green where the B4027 bore sharply left. It continued eastwards out of the village and headed across the fields to the Cross In Hand roundabout on the A5. The road ahead, at one time the A427, is now the A4303.
