Barlby is a linear village now located in North Yorkshire, England. It is situated 2 miles (3 km) to the north-east of the market town of Selby, and is bordered to the west by the River Ouse and to the east by the A19 Barlby bypass. Across the bypass is Barlby's smaller sister village, Osgodby with which, since 1974, it has formed the civil parish of Barlby with Osgodby.

From 1894 until 1935, Barlby was located in Riccall Rural District. In 1935 the Ricall Rural District was abolished and its place was taken by Derwent Rural District which administered the local area until the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974. Since 1974, Barlby has been in the Selby District of North Yorkshire.

Historically, Barlby was in the ecclesiastical parish of Hemingbrough in the wapentake of Ouse and Derwent.
