The second edition of The Dictionary of Urbanism by Rob Cowan, published in 2020, suggests that pebble can mean:
- ‘A small stone, rounded by the action of water, ice or sand, as used in pebble paving.
- (obsolete) A stone. Leases signed in the 1770s for the construction of houses in Bedford Square, London, specified that the carriageway in front of the houses should be paved with ‘Scotch Granite or Square Jersey Pebbles’.’
