Round Low is a bit tired looking and doesn't really stand out amongst all the old lead workings it lies in. Be careful if you leave the path here or on Carsington Pastures some of the old shafts are only covered with wooden boards and grass.
The Hopton Works spoil the view to Harboro Rocks which, in itself, is well worth a sniff around.

Thomas Bateman excavated part of the barrow in 1848, uncovering a pottery urn containing flint artefacts and the remains of a human cremation.
