|Route outline (key)|
The B4302 is a rural B-road in east Carmarthenshire. The road was originally unclassified but had gained its number by 1932. It runs northward from Llandeilo, connecting the A40 on the northern edge of the town to Pont ar Annell on the A482, some 2.5 km south of Pumsaint.
The first part of the route lies on the west side of the southward-flowing Afon Dulais, though initially at some distance from the river itself as the road climbs to pass through New Inn. After crossing the Dulais at Pont y Penbwl the B4302 ascends the side valley of the small Afon Ddu by way of the appropriately named Halfway to reach Talley, with its striking Abbey ruins and twin lakes below and to the left of our road.
Soon after we have passed the Irongate Lodge entrance to the grounds of Edwinsford mansion the B4337 turns off to the left and the B4302 continues along the southeastern (left) bank of the Afon Cothi and then its sidestream, Afon Annell, through the small village of Crug-y-bar before arriving at its terminus by the Bridgend Inn on the A482 at Pont ar Annell.
