B4119 Wishaw - Tamworth
This article is about the original B4119 south of Tamworth.
For the current B4119, a short link road in Castle Bromwich, see B4119

The A4091 (former B4119) near Hunts Green

The B4119 originally ran along the west bank of the River Tame, therefore being a counterpart of the A423 which ran on the east bank.

The road started on the A446 at Wishaw and headed north, bypassing Middleton and Drayton Bassett before crossing the A5 at Fazeley. It ended shortly afterwards on the A453 on the southern edge of Tamworth.

Owing to its importance the road was upgraded to Class I status in the early 1920s, becoming the A4091. The northern end has since been declassified with the building of Riverdrive, allowing the A453 to bypass the narrow Lady Bridge.
