Full Description

Lead mining (Harkforward Mine) along the line of Hurdlow End Vein including a shaft, dressing floor and well-defined hollows and hillocks of post-medieval or possibly earlier date. The east part of the dressing floor is big enough to accommodate a gin circle, although a portion of the middle of the platform has collapsed with the ginging of the shaft. There is a further area at the north west of the dressing floor that could have been used for ore processing. The area of the dressing floor is marked on the 1853 Peak Forest Liberty map as a unit of land. On the 1922 OS map the location of the dressing floor is marked as an 'old lead mine'. (1)
