Pebmarsh is a small village and a civil parish in the Braintree district, in Essex, England. It is situated to the north east of Halstead close to the A131. It has a small village school, St. John the Baptist C of E primary school. There has been a school in Pebmarsh since the late 18th century, however the main part of the present school has been open and in operation since 1967, serving the surrounding villages of Pebmarsh, Lamarsh and Alphamstone.[1] Pebmarsh has a large village hall which was built fairly recently to replace its run-down predecessor. There is a children's park in the vicinity, as well as a small skate park with three ramps. The population of the village is included in the civil parish of Twinstead.

Sir Ronald Storrs, an official in the British Foreign and Colonial Office, is buried in the village churchyard.

Walking[edit]

Pebmarsh provides ample opportunity for walking through the beautiful English countryside. There are many public footpaths, for example one that leads to another village close-by, Colne Engaine.

Public House[edit]

Pebmarsh has a local village pub called the King's Head which re-opened on 31 December 2013 serving real ales and food. The Kings Head closed its doors permanently on 4 September 2016.

River[edit]

A river runs straight through the centre of the village, called the River Peb, and is where the name of the village 'Pebmarsh' comes from.
