|Route outline (key)|
The B4530 is a short link road in northwest Herefordshire.
The route starts on the A4113 in the hamlet of Walford and heads south across the valley of the River Teme. Our road is not completely flat but is nowhere near as hilly as the ridge that can be seen in the distance. The road isn't long and we soon bear left and end at a T-junction on the A4110.
The B4530 came into existence in the early 1930s but not along the route mentioned above. The A4110 originally followed the direct line from Adforton to Walford, with the B4530 created to cut off the corner for traffic heading to/from Leintwardine.
In the 1960s it became clear that Leintwardine was the obvious destination for A4110 traffic and so that road swapped routes with the B4530 north of Adforton, giving the situation that exists today.
