|Route outline (key)|
The B4504 is a link road through the western suburbs of Redditch. The road is entirely new-build, dating to the enlargement of the New Town in the 1970s.
The road starts at a roundabout in the Crabbs Cross area of town, where it meets the A441 and A448, and heads west along Windmill Drive, a street name it keeps for its entire length. This is a typical New Town distributor; the road remains semi-rural although it has a number of side roads leading to housing estates. Unlike some similar roads, however, the width of the road across the bridges does suggest it was planned and built as S2.
The B4504 continues to wind and it's not long before it's heading northwards. Morton Stanley Park (named after the benefactor, who was not the same man famous for finding Dr Livingstone) is passed, then we continue on to cross a roundabout. After going under a bridge carrying the now-unclassified original line of the A448 we end just afterwards at a GSJ on that road's present route.
