|Route outline (key)|
The road starts on the A4110 just north of Stretford Bridge. From here it is signed as the direct route to the westward A44 but is unsuitable for heavy vehicles. We head northwest along a narrow road between tall hedges and pass a few farm buildings.
Without ever having become wide enough to need a central line the road ends at a crossroads. Left is the A4112 and the A44 runs in the other two directions. Originally, however, the latter road did not exist here and so the B4457 continued ahead for about the same distance again to end on the original line of the A44, at what is now a turning for Eardisland.
