|Route outline (key)|
The B4429 is a short B-road in the southern suburbs of Rugby. It was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.
The road starts at a sharp bend on the A428 in the Rugby suburb of Hillmorton and heads west along Ashlawn Road. This is traffic-calmed to begin with but as the road continues the speed humps disappear. After a bridge over the long-gone Great Central Railway we enter open country and continue across the fields, passing a surprising number of buildings. Presently a roundabout is reached on the A426 to the north of Dunchurch.
Originally the B4429 ended here. However, after the old A45 through Dunchurch was downgraded following the opening of Dunchurch Interchange on the M45 the B4429 took over the pre-bypass route. Our road therefore reappears almost a mile to the left, at traffic lights in the centre of Dunchurch, and turns both left and right. The road to the left is a quick link to Dunchurch Interchange, where there are only west-facing M45 sliproads; the A45 reappears here to take on the road ahead. Turn right in Dunchurch to leave town along Coventry Road. After a turn for the village of Thurlaston the roundabout that is M45 J1 is reached, where the motorway ends and again the A45 takes on the road ahead.
