The BBC Network production centre Pebble Mill was located in a suburb of Birmingham, England. Opened by HRH Princess Anne on the 10 November 1971, Pebble Mill was a prominent landmark in the Edgbaston area. The land for Pebble Mill was acquired by BBC Birmingham in the 1950s but plans for the site weren't approved until 1967, the same year that construction of the studios began.

The seven storey site contained several offices, television studios, radio studios, two canteens, a post office and a garden. The views from the roof were beautiful as the studios overlooked not only Cannon Hill Park, a nature centre, but also Birmingham's city centre. The world's longest running radio soap The Archers, television drama Doctors, talk show Pebble Mill at One and Midlands Today were all produced at Pebble Mill.

The BBC vacated the premises and moved to new studios at The Mailbox, completing the transfer on 22 October 2004. Remaining fixtures, furniture and technical equipment were auctioned at Pebble Mill a few weeks later. The studios were demolished between May and September 2005, and the Edgbaston site is to be redeveloped as a science park.
