The B5704 London Road, south-east of Woburn

B5704 is the number which been borne since 2017 by the downgraded section, north of the A5, of what was previously the A4012 but started life as parts of the A50 and A418, with a short period as B528.

The route begins in Hockliffe, where it leaves the north-west-bound A5 at the second of two adjacent sets of traffic lights and follows a generally north, then north-north-westerly course, passing the grounds of Woburn Abbey (on the right) before reaching Woburn itself. At the far side of the village it TOTSOs right; the road ahead to Woburn Sands used to be the A50, then became the A5130, but is now unclassified. It continues to skirt Woburn Park before passing through Husborne Crawley and eventually passing under the M1, immediately after which it ends at a roundabout on the A507 close to Ridgmont railway station.
