Wells Green is a junction in the Sheldon District of Eastern Birmingham, with the boundary between Birmingham and Solihull lying just to the east. In years gone by, this junction was popularly known as 'The Wheatsheaf' by locals, after the adjacent public house. However, now that the signs proclaim the official name, this is changing!

The road is the point where the B425, Hobs Moat Road, meets the A45 Coventry Road. It is a very large signalised crossroads, which has seen additional turning lanes encroach on the formerly wide central reservation of the A45. The B425 heads south, becoming Lode Lane, where Land Rover have their home, as it heads into Solihull. To the north, Sheaf Lane is an unclassified road heading towards the sprawling inter-war suburbia of Yardley.

The A45 used to run from Birmingham to Felixstowe but beyond the M1 it has been replaced by the A14.
