Barmby on the Marsh is a village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire. It is situated approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) west of the market town of Howden. It lies at the end of a long no through road on the east bank of the River Ouse near its confluence with the River Derwent and the site of Barmby on the Marsh flood defense.
The village has a population of approximately 400. Its local amenities include a thriving local primary school, a busy village restaurant and Garlthorpes institute hall where regular local events are held.
Between 1885 and 1955 Barmby on the Marsh had its own railway station on the Hull and Barnsley line but this has long gone.
The Parish council sits every other month (usually on the first Tuesday of the month) where members of the community are always welcome to attend and listen to the discussions held on all parish related matters and the administrative duties relating to the parish burial ground.
