|Route outline (key)|
The B4115 is a fairly short B-road in north Warwickshire. Originally unclassified, it gained its number in the late 1920s; although the road may look as though it was once part of the A46 this was never the case.
The road starts at a roundabout at the northern end of the A46 Warwick bypass, where it also meets the A429. It heads north, running between the A46 and the River Avon, soon going under the Coventry to Leamington railway line; this is a rather awkward junction as an unclassified road from Leek Wootton to Hill Wootton crosses us and goes under the railway line at this exact same point.
We continue north along a tree-lined road and pass a hotel before reaching the A452. At one time this was a crossroads but it is now a double LILO with through B4115 traffic in both directions having to turn left and U-turn at the next roundabout. Having regained our northerly route we bypass Ashow before skirting the grounds of Stoneleigh Abbey. We then pass to the west of Stoneleigh village before reaching a T-junction on the B4113.
There's a short multiplex to the left along that road, which takes us under the A46, after which the B4115 regains its number by turning right. It skirts the edge of the Coventry urban area and continues through the suburb before a further LILO is met. Traffic on the B4115 is forced to merge with the westbound A45, whilst the road can be accessed by the A45, A46 and [[A444] from the Stivichall Interchange roundabout.
The B4115 now ends here but originally continued north along Leaf Lane to end on the A45 on Whitley Common. When the A45 was given its current route the B4115 now crossed it at a staggered crossroads before ending on what had been renumbered A423. Most of this route still exists but the A444 has been built along more-or-less the same line thus allowing the B4115 to be downgraded.
