Kirby-le-Soken is a small village in the Tendring District of North East Essex, England, in an agricultural and increasingly residential corner of the county. Although the village has managed to stay distinct and separate from the growing conurbations of Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze (formerly Walton-le-Soken), it is a developed and working village, not a time capsule. The original village centre still boasts an engineering works and carpenter's workshop alongside the Red Lion public house, all opposite St. Michael's church.

Kirby-le-Soken today still has the feel of a traditional English village, it is situated in an area of land called the Le-Sokens in Essex and is isolated from Kirby Cross, Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze by fields and retains a village shop, two pubs and two churches[1][2]. Kirby was originally a scattered farming community with an upper and lower road. Many people still refer to the village as lower Kirby with the upper road now known as Kirby Cross. The village can be entered by three routes, from the West or East on the B1034 or from the South by coming down Halstead Road from Kirby Cross
