The B4424 is a local route in Worcestershire that runs on the other side of the River Severn to the A38. It was numbered A4021 for many years but was downgraded to receive its present number in the 1960s.
The road starts at a TOTSO on the B4211 at Rhydd and heads north. The River Severn is off to the right but not visible - and as the road continues on the river moves away. There is no obvious Severn Valley at this point but the Malverns can be seen to the left.
Continuing north the road goes through a wood and passes a car park by the Old Hills before a couple of sharp bends take it past Horse Hill into Callow End, the largest place en route. We follow Upton Road through the village centre and skirt the grounds of Stanwick Abbey, formerly a convent but now a hotel. There's another short rural section before we reach Powick, where we end at a gyratory on the A449.
