An appeal for information has been made after thieves targeted a church in Glossop and stole a quantity of ancient flagstones.
The theft from the grounds of Glossop Parish Church of All Saints has left the local community saddened that someone could stoop so low.
The stolen flagstones were taken from the path outside the west end of the church overnight between Wednesday 5 and Thursday 6 January.
Tyre tracks were left nearby so it is believed a vehicle was used in the theft of the very heavy stone.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police by calling 101 or reporting it online at https://www.derbyshire.police.uk/, quoting reference number 22000009806.
