The B4563 number is allocated to Vicar Street in Sedgley, a small Black Country town between Wolverhampton and Dudley. Owing to its short length the history of the allocation of the number is not known, beyond the high number itself pointing to a relatively recent allocation.
No more than a short-cut between the A459 from Dudley and the A463 towards Wombourne, it is all of 240 yards long, and hence too short for its number to be printed on most maps. It steers a straight course between All Saints Church to the north and the cemetery to the south (this sounds deeply mundane, and it is), although it is not quite possible to see one end from the other due to a slight kink at the western end. Strangely, it has the priority at the junction with the A463 next to the police station, but works less well as a short cut from Wombourne to Dudley, because the right-turn onto the A459 has no traffic lights!
