B4453 Dunsmore Heath - Lillington
Near Princethorpe

The B4453 forms part of the direct route between Rugby and Royal Leamington Spa, although given how winding the road is it is not signed as such. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in the mid-1920s.

The road starts on the A45 and A4071 at Blue Boar Interchange, a junction that gave its name to a defunct services chain. We head southwest across Bourton Heath along the Straight Mile, a section of road that lulls us into a false sense of security given what is to come. After a right-hand bend we pass to the north of Frankton, then a sharp left-right zigzag takes us to Princethorpe. The B4455 comes in from the right and our road is now the dominant number for a few yards' multiplex to a T-junction on the A423.

We now multiplex north and bypass the centre of Princethorpe before bearing left to regain our number. Leamington is now signed. The chapel of Princethorpe College is clearly visible to the right. We continue on and pass Wappenbury before another left-right zigzag takes us into Weston-under-Wetherley. After passing the church we reenter open country then pass through a wood before reaching Cubbington, now more-or-less a suburb of Leamington.

After crossing a mini-roundabout we enter the suburb of Lillington and continue along Cubbington Road. Presently a roundabout is reached where our road ends on the A445.
