|Route outline (key)|
The B4200 is a short B-road in the Black Country. Originally unclassified, it gained its number in the mid-1920s, making it an early example of a recycled number. Although the road has the same route today that it had back then it was later extended northwest into Darlaston Green to end on the original route of the A462. This extension has since been declassified however; this presumably occurred when the A462 bypass was built.
The route starts at a mini-roundabout on the A4038 in Darlaston and heads south. The road is lined with houses to the right but to the left is the back of the retail park just off J9 of the M6. After passing a couple of service roads a roundabout is reached providing access to the retail park and the motorway.
On the far side of the roundabout the road becomes wholly residential. We cross Woden Road (what passes for a Wednesfield bypass) at a roundabout and then continue into the town. The road remains suburban in character as far as its terminus, at a T-junction on the A462.
