Filming in Mole Valley

Due to its exceptional variety of assets such as woodlands, listed buildings, recreation grounds, caves and mausoleum, Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) is sometimes approached by filming companies for permission to film within the district.

Some of the MVDC-owned locations which may be available for filming are:

  • The Hope Mausoleum, Dorking - built by Thomas Hope after the death of his son in 1817, this Grade II* listed tomb is located in Chart Park with wide views over the surrounding countryside
  • Dorking Cotmandene - a traditional village green/open space in Dorking with fantastic views of Box Hill
  • Dorking Caves - constructed over a period of time from 17th to 19th century, Dorking Caves were originally used by brewers because of its cool conditions. Structurally safe and with good access points
  • Milton Gore, Coldharbour Lane - an unusual area of woodland with a number of craters and 'spooky' looking trees
  • Brockham Green - a scenic village green with great views of the Surrey Hills
  • Dorking Cemetery - the cemetery may be used for filming subject to conditions, please contact MVDC at least 21 days in advance if you would like to film here

To film at a MVDC-owned location please email property@molevalley.gov.uk. Parking provision may be available upon request depending on the location. Please note that a licence will be required before filming commences and proof of an adequate public liability insurance will be requested. A risk assessment and method statement may also be requested. Please allow at least 21 days notice to film at a MVDC-owned location.

If you wish to film on a public road or pavement, a licence is required from Surrey County Council (see 'Internet Links'). In all cases you will need the permission of the landowner.
