CONSERVATIONISTS are appealing for help to track down a historic stone which has disappeared from the top of a listed monument at a Peak District beauty spot.

Hope Cross, on the ridge north of Hope village, is Grade II listed and believed to date back to 1737.

National Trust volunteer Chris Morgan said: “Sadly, the capstone has disappeared. The National Trust know the capstone was in place just before Christmas. It was missing by the first week in January. A search nearby has found no trace.”
