The buildings that can be seen at the Magpie Mine are the remains of the Cornish pumping-engine house and chimney, with the headgear of the mine shaft and winding winches. A cottage used as the Field Centre of the Peak District Mines Historical Society, and various other buildings. There is an ore-separating jig, horse-gin circles, crushing circles, tram lines and spoil heaps.
