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

Stolen Sheep


We are appealing for information following a report of theft of three Greyface Dartmoor Sheep that were stolen from a property in Biggin. The theft is believed to have occurred overnight from 2200 hours on 25/8 and they were discovered missing the following morning.

The sheep are a unique breed and this has understandably caused some distress to the owner.

We are asking for anybody with any information that could assist us with locating the sheep or the person(s) responsible for the theft to contact us either:

– On 101
– On our dedicated email

The crime reference is: 17000366151
