Flue

A channel for fumes leading to a chimney or vent from a furnace which would allow the fumes to disperse. This might be large enough to admit a child or periodic flooding to scrape any residues from the side walls. Flues could run for miles, e.g. the Allendale chimneys were used from the smelting mill and were about three miles.
