|Route outline (key)|
The road turns off the A40 at a roundabout in Hildersley and heads west along Gloucester Road into the town centre. At the junction with Cantilupe Road our road becomes one-way and continues into the Market Place where it crosses the B4234 (which is two-way to the left and one-way away from us to the right). The road now narrows further as it runs into the High Street (it is only the fact that signs have directed us this way that make us think this is a good idea after all) which leads to a T-junction.
This is the point where eastbound traffic diverges from the westbound route. It follows what was the A4152 but is now unclassified north along Edde Cross Street to a T-junction where it turns right onto Greytree Road to meet the B4234 at a double mini-roundabout. Our route remains on unclassified roads as it multiplexes with the southbound B4234 ahead onto Millpond Street. After going round two sides of Morrisons a roundabout is reached. Here traffic is directed sharply right onto Cantilupe Road, presently reaching the road junction mentioned in the last paragraph, where eastbound B4260 traffic can turn left. This route is somewhat lengthy and so locals will almost certainly have their own way of getting through town.
If we return to the western end of the High Street the B4260 continues west from here, now two-way once more, under a cliff along Wilton Road. After bearing round to the right the road briefly follows the River Wye downstream before crossing the river and running through Wilton to return to the A40 at a roundabout. The road ahead is the A49.
