The B4396 at Pentrefelin

The B4396 is a long rural B-road in the Marches.

It starts at Abertridwr at the B4393 about a mile from the dam of Lake Vyrnwy. The road goes North Eastwards, climbing and then descending through Glasgwm Forest. The descent to Hirnant is S1 only.

The descent continues along Cwm Hirnant to the Tanat Valley on an occasional S1 basis. At Pentybontfawr it reaches a T-junction on the B4391 and multiplexes east along that road until it leaves the valley; the B4396 turns left to stay in the valley bottom. It crosses the Tanat, Rhaeadr and Iwrch rivers in relatively quick succession whilst continuing along the Tanat Valley. At Pen-y-Bont it crosses into England - but given the place names here you would never know.

To the west of Porth-y-Waen the A495 comes in from the right and TOTSOs to begin a multiplex (which has only existed since 1935). This continues to the end of the A495 at a crossroads on the A483 at Llynclys; the road ahead is the B4396 once more.

The B4396 has by now left the hills behind. It goes through Knockin and crosses Knockin Heath to end at a roundabout on the A5.
