Black Rocks Vandalised – Police Appeal


Derbyshire police are appealing to the public to help trace those responsible for causing graffiti damage at the popular Cromford beauty spot, Black Rocks. Vandals have sprayed tags and offensive language on the rocks.


Officers from the Matlock Bath, Cromford and Bonsall Safer Neighbourhood Team were contacted by a member of the public about the vandalism and PCSO Brian Pemberton from the team said: “We are appealing to the public in the hope that someone may know who is responsible for this damage. Black Rocks is a popular beauty spot and yet it is being let down by mindless vandals spraying graffiti.

“This is an ongoing issue and is turning an otherwise beautiful and picturesque area of the Derbyshire Dales into somewhere offensive for people to visit.

“I would encourage anyone who knows of those responsible, or have witnessed damage taking place, to get in touch so that we can bring those responsible to justice.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact PCSO Brian Pemberton on 101 or by sending him a message using the Contact Us section of our website:

To report a crime anonymously call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
