Listed Buildings

There are more than 1,000 listed buildings in Mole Valley.

A listed building can be a house, wall, public building, monument, memorial or any structure that is included on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic interest.

A list of the buildings, organised on a parish basis, has been compiled by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, as advised by Historic England.

Inclusion on the list means that the structure is given special protection through legislation contained in the Planning Acts.
