Thieves strike at St Mary’s Church, Astbury

Working overnight on 2-3 March, thieves took many ancient and valuable paving stones from the path running from the steps opposite the Village Hall and under the old yew tree. It seems the thieves parked by the steps, where they were unlikely to be noticed.

Nonetheless, police officers went door-to-door on Thursday morning asking residents if they had noticed anything unusual that night.
