The name "Stambridge" means "Stone bridge". The only bridge in the parish is now brick-built over the small stream that rises in Canewdon, flows under the road just south of the Royal Oak, and into the Roach near "Waldens". The village itself is called Great Stambridge.
The centre of population in Great Stambridge has moved from around the church to the Royal Oak Inn area.
The combined parish consists of approximately three square miles. The boundaries are, in the east, Biggins Farm (Paglesham Road); in the west Little Stambridge Hall; the south the River Roach ; and in a line crossing Stambridge Road at "Richmonds" and number 159 Stambridge Road.
Sport and leisure
The local football club, Stambridge United, play in the Essex Olympian League and was formerly a member of the Essex Senior League.
