Heightington Road will take your breath away with 19% ramps

Heightington Road is the name of a very challenging drive located in the Wyre Forest District in Worcestershire, England. The road is very steep, with 19% gradients. It is a scary road in the winter with no passing places.

Heightington Road

Tucked away at the very edge of the Wyre Forest, the road is totally paved, but extremely narrow so proceed cautiously and hope no other vehicles come from the other direction. Not recommended if you don't know how to reverse. The road is 4.98km (3.1 miles) long, running north-south from B4194 road (south of Bewdley, on the banks of the River Severn) to Dunley Road (in Heightington).

The road is very steep, hitting a 19% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Due its steepness, the road is unsuitable for heavy goods vehicles. The road crosses a ford. It’s liable to flooding, so remember, do not cross when in flood.
