a metal pipe ?

Note from dad :some aspects of the building were odd for a farm

mist coming in over the mine above the farm ruins – the other half is flooded

in the mist at Turn Lowe,  The mist took 30 minutess to come down across our route making it cold and difficult to see,

me on a capped mine shaft – poor visibility which got worse as it became dark
