|Route outline (key)|
The B4203 is a largely rural B-road in the west Midlands.
It starts in two separate places on the A44 in the Herefordshire town of Bromyard, following either New Road or Sherford Street as far as the town centre one-way system. Both these roads are the original route of the A44 before it was rerouted onto its present line.
Traffic using Sherford Street does not have to worry about the one-way system as it can just continue straight (in both directions). However, New Road traffic, plus all traffic wanting to get between the B4203 and B4214 has to follow the loop, which appears to be part of the B4203.
The B4203 leaves Bromyard along Church Street, crossing the River Frome on the edge of town. It goes through the scattered settlement of Bromyard Downs before reaching the hamlet of Tedstone Wafre. The road then forms the Herefordshire-Worcestershire county boundary for about a mile before leaving, once again on the Herefordshire side. After going through Upper Sapey it crosses the B4204 (we have priority) before entering Worcestershire proper.
The road decends through a wood to Stanford-on-Teme (which isn't) before crossing the River Teme at Stanford Bridge. Now heading eastwards, it crosses Kingswood Common before going round the bottom of Warsgrove Hill. It ends soon afterwards on the A443 on the edge of Great Witley.
