Heading for Hillersland on a now declassified section of the old B4432

The B4432 is a short B-road in the Forest of Dean, which gained its number when an unclassified road was upgraded in 1935.

It was originally much longer. Starting from a point on the ridge immediately south of Symonds Yat Rock – where it formed an end-on junction with the minor road running south from the Wye crossing at Huntsham Bridge – it ran through Berry Hill down to Broadwell near Coleford. The classified section of this route has since been much shortened, with the result that today only the final mile from Five Acres on the A4136 is numbered B4432.

Today the road starts on some crossroads on the B4226 in Broadwell. It heads north before curving gently to the left to reach the crossroads with the B4028 at Mile End. These crossroads are a notorious black spot and had traffic signals installed on them towards the end of 2018. The B4028, which takes priority through the junction, was also reduced from 40 to 30mph as part of the works. Just before the B4432 itself reaches the crossroads, an unclassified road bears off to the right which helps traffic heading towards Gloucester (and vice versa) bypass the crossroads. Carrying on past Mile End, the road becomes Woodgate Road and has a sharp double bend before ending at traffic lights on the A4136 in Five Acres, another crossroads where the priority road used to be 40 and was unsignalized.
