B4669 Hinckley - Sapcote
Looking east towards Sapcote on Hinckley Road

The out-of-zone B4669 runs eastward from Hinckley in Leicestershire to the B4114 (former A46) Fosse Way at Stoney Bridge, immediately east of the village of Sapcote. The road was originally numbered B579 and quickly became the A5070 but gained its present number following completion of the M69 in the late 1970s.

Starting at traffic lights by the Holywell public house on the B590 Hinckley Inner Ring Road, the B4669 heads first southeastward along Burbage Road, crossing the Hinckley to Leicester railway line, before reaching, within 800 m, the right turn which takes traffic south to Burbage itself (along the B578).

Our own route continues east, heading towards Sapcote. Houses line each side of the road for a further kilometre or so before we enter open countryside and – shortly after skirting the south side of Aston Firs, a wooded area to our left – reach junction 2 of the M69. This limited-access interchange provides entry to the motorway's northbound carriageway and exit from its southbound carriageway only.

After running through Sapcote village – which lies two kilometres or so further east – the B4669 winds past a drowned quarry on the left-hand side of the road before descending very gently to its terminus at a T-junction with the B4114 hard by Stoney Bridge.
