Route outline (key)
B4157 Bilston Lane - Willenhall - Ashmore Lake
Fomer B4157, Willenhall

The original route of the B4157 ran through the town of Willenhall, Staffordshire. Starting just north of New Road, the original route of the A454 in the town centre, it headed northeast via Cross Street, Upper Lichfield Street, Lower Lichfield Street, Stringes Lane and Charles Street to end on the A462 at Ashmore Lake.

The road was later extended south as far as Bilston Lane (originally A463, then A454 and now B4484). From there it headed north along Rose Hill and Bilston Street to meet the original route in the town centre. Ironically, this section was first classified as part of B4484 in the 1930s before becoming part of the B4157 by the 1950s, and today is once again part of the B4484.

The B4157 was truncated back to the section between Willenhall Town Centre and Bilston Lane in circa 1986, it appears on the 1985 Landranger[1], but is shown as unclassified on the 1987 printing[2]. This matches a number of classified route changes within Walsall Metropolitan Borough at a similar time.

The original northern section is currently unclassified (and partially impassible to motor vehicles), whilst the later southern section is now part of the B4484.
