This is a Secure Goods Warehouse. There was no engine sheds at Bugsworth - the tramway was operated under gravity coming down and horse drawn going back to Dove Holes. DB IWPS Ltd Bugsworth Basin

When queried in the forum, Buggyite commented:-

Mr Baines is absolutely correct; the Peak Forest Tramway operated throughout its life by gravity from Dove Holes to Bugsworth, and by horse haulage in the opposite direction; so there were never any engines, and hence no need for an engine shed.

As to its purpose, I happily bow to Mr Baines' superior knowledge of things canal. I'd have probably guessed as a dry storage warehouse, but that would have been purely a guess.
