The B4218 (former B4217) in Colwall Stone

The B4217 was the original number of the road through the Wyche Pass through the Malvern Hills. As such it connected the A48 (current A449) to itself as that road took the longer but easier road via Little Malvern.

The road was important enough to be upgraded to Class I status - it became the A4105 later in the 1920s. However, by the 1960s it was downgraded again to become the B4218 (its original number having been used elsewhere in the interim).

The original route of the B4217 in Upper Colwall was along the now-bypassed Fossil Bank. The remainder of the road follows the B4218 route.
