Barling (or Barling Magna) is a village and civil parish in Essex, England. It is located approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) northeast of Southend-on-Sea and is 29 km (18 mi) southeast from the county town of Chelmsford. The village is in the district of Rochford and in the parliamentary constituency of Rochford & Southend East. There is a Parish Council of Barling Magna.[1]

The rural parish, formally known as Barling Magna, also includes the hamlets of Little Wakering and Stonebridge, and had a population of 1,657 according to the 2001 census, increasing to 1,740 at the 2011 census.[2]

The word "Barling" is said to derive from two Saxon words "ban", a boar, and "ing", a meadow.

Barling is by Barlinghall Creek, a tributary of the River Roach.

In its agricultural setting, Barling village is mainly situated along Little Wakering Road, Church Road and Barling Road. Where these roads meet is the village duck pond.

In the adjoining village of Little Wakering stands a terrace of 17th century dormer cottages. Opposite is the church, dating from the 11th century, but largely rebuilt by John De Wakering, Bishop of Norwich.[citation needed] In the tower are displayed the Royal Arms of George III.
