The B4194 is a medium-length B-road in the Wyre Forest area.


Route

It starts on the B4196 to the south of Astley Cross, south of Stourport-on-Severn. It skirts the edge of the suburbs of Southport before crossing the A451. Half a mile further on it reaches the River Severn and follows it upstream for some distance (although the river is not always visible owing to the high hedges). After leaving the Severn behind, the B4194 goes under the A456 Bewdley bypass. There is no access between these two roads that does not involve going through the centre of Bewdley and that is where the B4194 goes.

In the centre of town there is a brief multiplex with the B4190 (pre-bypass A456). The road then climbs out of Bewdley into the Wyre Forest itself. It reaches a clearing and the village of Buttonoak, before getting to Buttonbridge on the far side of the wood. A short distance further on the road TOTSOs right (the road ahead is the B4199) before continuing for another half-mile to Kinlet, where it ends at a T-junction on the B4363.

History

The B4194 originally reached Stourport

Originally the B4194 started on the A451 in the centre of Stourport and ran along the left bank of the River Severn into Bewdley. It multiplexed along the A456 through the town before taking up its current route to Kinlet. The Stourport to Bewdley section of road was renumbered as an extension of the B4195 in the mid-1920s (part has since been taken over by the A456 Bewdley bypass) and the B4194 moved to its current route on the right bank of the Severn.
