The A41 is a major trunk road in United Kingdom that links London to Birkenhead. It passes through various towns and villages including Watford, Hemel Hempstead, Aylesbury, Warwick, Solihull, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Whitchurch and Chester.


It follows part of the line of the old Roman road, Akeman Street.


With the opening of the M40 right through to its link up with the M42 near Birmingham in the early 1990s, much of the route has been downgraded, and renumbered accordingly. The section between Bicester and the M42 near Solihull no longer possesses this number as a result.


The Tring bypass was built in 1973 as a motorway, the A41(M), although this section has been downgraded since. The A41(M) was originally designed to run from Tring to what is now M25 junction 19a. This section was finally built in the late 1980s, although to a lower standard and only as far as M25 junction 20.


In 2003 this section was extended to bypass Aston Clinton.
