|Route outline (key)|
The B4480 was a rural B-road to the east of Redditch. The road was originally unclassified. It gained its number around 1930 but was declassified again around 1990.
The road started on the A34 (present A3400) to the north of Wootton Wawen and headed northwest to avoid Henley-in-Arden. It crossed the Birmingham to Stratford railway line and soon reached the B4095 (present A4189) at Hunger Hill. There was a short multiplex to the left before the B4480 regained its number and continued in the same direction.
After passing Barrels Park the road went through Ullenhall before climbing out of the village. It went along the top of a ridge before ending on the original route of the A435 at what was a crossroads but which is now a GSJ.
