Buckland is an attractive village parish recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086. Our church of St Mary the Virgin is within the Diocese of Southwark, and although we’re closer to Reigate, we are in the Mole Valley Council District, based in Dorking.
The Parish boundary is 2 miles from north to south, and about 1.5 miles east to west (Map). We are about 20 miles from Central London. We have around 250 homes and a population of c. 600.
The centre of the village and the green are a Conservation Area, and we have been voted ‘Best Kept Village’ on several occasions. The North Downs escarpment in Buckland is within the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and the parish is traversed by the North Downs Way and Greensand Way long distance footpaths.
Enjoy your visit! We welcome feedback and enquiries to the webmaster.
