B4455 Wolvey Heath – Cross in Hand
This article is about the original route of the B4455 in north Warwickshire.

Mere Lane: part of the original B4455

The original route of the B4455 ran parallel to the A5 in north Warwickshire. The road was not included in the original 1922 road numbering scheme but was added as part of a later batch of changes in the mid-1920s.

Starting on the then-A447 (now B4109) just north of Wolvey Heath the road ran southeastwards to end on the A5 Watling Street at Cross in Hand, on the border with Leicestershire.

The route has been unclassified since the opening in the mid-1970s of the M69 motorway and the associated road classification revisions which took place in this area at that time. Interestingly, halfway along its route – at Cloudesley Bush – the original B4455 crosses the Fosse Way, which today bears that same number.
