B4080 Tewkesbury – Defford
Eckington Bridge

The B4080 is a rural road near the M5, mostly in Worcestershire.

It starts on the A38 in the Gloucestershire town of Tewkesbury at a mini-roundabout at the northern end of the High Street. This junction is adjacent to the A38 bridge over the River Avon but for the time being the B4080 remains on the left bank.

The road heads northeast and soon enters Worcestershire. After going under the M5 it enters the village of Bredon where it crosses the Birmingham to Cheltenham railway line. Immediately afterwards it runs end-on into the B4079; the B4080 TOTSOs left at this point whilst the other road ends.

Now heading north, the road passes between Bredon Hill and the railway line (albeit significantly closer to the latter). It goes through Eckington before crossing the bridge over the River Avon. This bridge is old and narrow and the traffic flow is therefore controlled by lights.

After going past Birlingham the B4080 ends on the A4104 (formerly A440) to the east of Defford.
