Roads to nowhere
Unusually, there are only two public roads in the parish of Buckland that link with outside the parish: the A25 and the Old Road going into Betchworth. All the other roads in the parish are cul-de-sacs and stop within the parish boundary.

Setting sail
The tiny Buckland sawmill, built around 1870, is 12ft square and about 30ft high and set in the garden of a privately owned house. Appointments can be made on 07786 966841 and it usually opens to the public for Heritage Open Days in September.

In the family
The current Buckland Estate proprietor, Adrian Sanders, has a family trace from 1654 to the present day some 358 years of the inherited family line of residence!

Grand designs
The barn, which stands on the main village green by the idyllic pond, is a rather rare structure a water tower was added many moons ago. In the early 80s, the barn, which has also doubled as a church in its time, was converted to an attractive home.

While youre there

At Buckland Deli & Gifts, they sell everything from freshly baked breads to home-made chutney and much more. Just opposite is the picturesque green in Buckland with its traditional pond, barn and church.
