Barnby is a village and civil parish in the Waveney district of the English county of Suffolk. The village is 5 miles west of Lowestoft and 3 miles east of Beccles in the north of the county. It is effectively merged with the village of North Cove which constitutes a separate parish. The village is on the edge of the Broads and lies on the A146 road running between Norwich and Lowestoft. This bypasses the built up area on a series of bends known locally as the "Barnby bends".
