    Unless you can find any more stamps/nomenclature on that "giant" it'll be very difficult to nail down who made it.
    There have been many, many pipe companies based out of London over the years, each with subsidiaries and seconds-outlets.

    That metal pipe looked like a millipede at first, hope it doesn't bite you. Lol.

    Awesome finds though.
