|Cross Green, Wolverhampton|
|A449 • C108|
Coven Roundabouts (pronounced with a long 'o') are located on the A449 just to the north of Wolverhampton, and forms the access from the city to the commuter villages of Coven and Brewood (pronounced as a single syllable, "Brood").
The roundabouts replaced a former slightly staggered junction in the late 1980s, which was in turn created by the post-war creation of Stafford Road on its present alignment, rather than on the original route (along the cunningly-named "Old Stafford Road") to the east.
The signage at the junction is unusual in that it shows the two villages of Coven and Brewood consistently on one line, giving the appearance of pointing towards a single settlement of "Coven Brewood".
