|Route outline (key)|
The B4348 is a long rural B-road, mostly in Herefordshire.
It starts, however, just over the border in Wales, in Hay on Wye. The B4348 turns east off the main road (the B4350) and heads along Oxford Road, soon entering England. A few miles further on it reaches Hardwicke, where it TOTSOs right, the road ahead being the B4352.
The B4348 is an undulating road and eventually gets to Dorstone, where it joins the valley of the River Dore, which it follows downstream. It goes through Peterchurch and Vowchurch before climbing out of the valley. The B4347 turns off to the right which continues along the river.
The road then goes over a hill and reaches the B4349 on the edge of Kingstone. It skirts the village and continues via Thruxton to cross the A465 on Winnal Common at a staggered crossroads. A few hundred yards later is a level crossing where the road crosses the Welsh Marches Line.
The road continues through Much Dewchurch to Wormelow Tump where there is a T-junction on the A466. There is a short multiplex south before the B4348 regains its number and continues southeastwards. It goes through Turkey Tump before ending at a T-junction on the A49 in Llandinabo - a Welsh name in the English countryside.
