B4174 Quarry Bank - Cradley

The B4174 is a short Black Country B-road, running from Cradley, Worcestershire to the boundary between Cradley Heath and Quarry Bank in Staffordshire, crossing the boundary between Dudley Metropolitan Borough and Sandwell Metropolitan Borough as it does so. It is roughly equidistant between the three largest towns in the area: Dudley, Stourbridge and Halesowen.

The B4174 crossing the River Stour

The B4174 runs parallel to the B4173, and many journeys will have the opportunity to use either road. The main difference is that whereas the B4173 runs over a hill, and thus has steep gradients and dramatic views, the B4174 goes around it, meaning that it is much more level, but contains many sharp curves.

Just like the B4173, the road runs between the A458 and A4100. Along the way, the road crosses the Birmingham to Kidderminster railway line and the River Stour. There is an inadequately signed TOTSO at Lyde Green (which interestingly, is signed as the B4174 at its other end, but this is probably missing a pair of parentheses as opposed to indicating a spur of the B-road).
