|Route outline (key)|
The B4371 is a rural B-road in south Shropshire.
It starts on the B5477 (originally the A49 but for some years the B4370) in Church Stretton. It heads east through town, crossing the Welsh Marches Line by the station before meeting the A49 "bypass" at a set of traffic lights.
There is more of Church Stretton on the far side of the A49 but eventually the road enters open country. It climbs through a pass out of the valley, through the village of Hope Bowdler, before descending to Wall under Heywood.
The long escarpment of Wenlock Edge becomes visible to the right and gets closer as the road continues. After going through Longville in the Dale and crossing a bridge over a dismantled railway line the B4371 starts to run along the bottom of the Edge before climbing through a wood and reaching the aptly named hamlet of Hill Top. The road continues along the top of the ridge for another few miles before descending the other side to the town of Much Wenlock. The road ends at a T-junction on the A458.
