A road closure will be in place near the Nine Ladies Stone Circle during the period around June 21 – amid concerns about anti-social visitors flocking to the mysterious and ancient site.

Every year, particularly around the summer solstice, thousands of people flock to the monument on Stanton Moor in Stanton in Peak.

A Derbyshire Constabulary spokesperson said: “With the summer solstice approaching parking restrictions have been put in place in the Stanton Moor area.
