The B4584 is a short road in southern Pembrokeshire to serve the coast at Freshwater East. The road was originally unclassified but gained its number in 1935.
Starting on the A4139 just south of the railway bridge in Lamphey our road TOTSOs left immediately and leaves the village heading south. On the edge of open country the road runs along the boundary of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Presently we reach a sharp left-hand bend, where we properly enter the national park, and then head east to enter the village of Freshwater East. Given how close we are to the coast it's interesting that the sea isn't actually visible.
There's a glimpse of the sea at the next junction, where a road heads off right to the beach, then the road ends shortly after at the next road junction. The road to the left was originally a continuation of the B4584 and took us back north to the A4139 a quarter of a mile east of where we started. However, this road is very narrow and so it is not surprising it was declassified in the 1970s; the road is now signed for access only.
