Buckland is a village and civil parish in the Mole Valley District of Surrey, England, located between Dorking and Reigate, the nearest towns. The civil parish is bordered by the North Downs escarpment in the north. The area contains a number of clay pits.

The village church St Mary the Virgin was built in 1380. The windmill is a tourist focal point.

Buckland was part of the Reigate Rural District from 1894 until 1933 when it was split between Reigate Municipal Borough and Dorking and Horley Rural District.
