Road Conditions

The Police are warning motorists to take care on the roads and not to travel on any higher routes. Locally, with a number of crashes yesterday and more snow overnight, the A515 between Newhaven and Buxton is closed this morning.

Also take care on Alsop Lane as the increased traffic due to the temporary closure of the B5056 has churned up the verges with cars getting stuck in the mud when attempting to pass other vehicles. This will be compounded by the muddy areas being hidden by the snow.

For official information check the County Council website:

and for more local information check the Buxton Weather Watch Facebook page:

Do add comments on any local road conditions, any problems and what is passable.

Keep an Eye on your Landrovers


We received a report yesterday that a Land Rover Defender 90 XS in Black of registration
YC65 HEV was stolen from a property in Flagg near Bakewell.

The vehicle was stolen some time between 2100 hours on 11th September and 0600 hours 12th September 2017.

The vehicle was fitted with one of the police discounted back2you trackers. We were initially able to make a link towards the South of the county, but unfortunately, as the tracker was not charged, we soon lost contact with it.

This alert is to respectfully serve as a reminder:

-It is worth purchasing a tracker for your farm/agricultural vehicle. We were able to initially make a link to an area.

-If you have purchased a tracker, please ensure that it is activated and regularly charged in the event of a theft to maximise our opportunities of recovery and identifying the offender(s)

-Thirdly, Land Rover Defenders and quad bikes are still being targeted by thieves. Please continue to think about security, considering good locks, CCTV, trackers, adequate lighting, alarms etcetera and also please keep reporting suspicious visitors to your farm premises or in the general area.

If you require any further help or advice, please contact the team either on 101 or via our dedicated rural crime team inbox:

Together we can beat Rural Crime.

Many Thanks

Arson at Middleton by Youlgrave



We are appealing to the public for information regarding 2 separate arsons that the police are investigating

The first is a barn fire that occurred approximately 2300 hours on Sunday 6th August 2017. The location for the fire is a farm property situated off of FRIDEN ROAD in MIDDLETON-BY-YOULGRAVE. The crime reference number is: 17000336296.

Extensive damage was caused to the barn. A number of silage bails were also slashed with a sharp implement. A car at the property was subject to extensive criminal damage. It would appear a sharp implement was used to cause the damage to the paintwork of the vehicle.

The CEX festival was taking place nearby at the time of the fire and a witness has mentioned sighting either a red or white colored Ford Fiesta, possibly a year 2000 model, parked near the property, with the engine running and two occupants inside at the time of the fire.

We are particularly keen to speak with anyone that could hold any information with regards to the sighting of the vehicle or if they are aware of any other suspicious persons or vehicles at or near the location around the time of the ignition

The second report that we are investigating is the deliberate ignition of 15 tons of bail straw that were located next to a barn by a public footpath at the top of DARK LANE in ALPORT. The fire has caused scorching to the exterior of the barn. This is believed to have occurred between 2015 hours and 2030 hours on Friday 18th August 2017. The crime reference to which this relates is: 17000354912.

We are appealing for information from anyone that may have been using the footpath around the time who may have sighted any suspicious persons’ or vehicles that could help us to identify who may be responsible.

At this stage it is unclear whether the fires are connected, but we would however like to take this opportunity to advise members of our rural community to be vigilant in respect of the recent reports due to the property that has been targeted.

There are a number of ways we can be contacted:
999- Emergency, happening there and now
101- Non-urgent to relay information or report something that has happened some time ago
Email- – Non-urgent enquiries for the team to investigate

Many Thanks
