Carder Low Mines are a well preserved line of vein hillocks, except at the centre where there is a mine complex on a hillock, with the vein hillocks removed to either side for reprocessing at this site. Here there is a sleepered shaft with an adjacent gin circle with a ruined surrounding wall. The circle is partly overlain by the ruined walls of a large rectangular building, presumably a coe. A short water channel, with small adjacent platform, leads to two ore-dressing ponds at the downslope end of the hillock. (1)
