Skirting the hole in the ground Broderick tries to get an angled view of both the spaces above and below the different size grates.

They look connected somehow. Make an IQ roll.

Also, the lower one looks detachable.

These openings look like something came from above and through the floor below, at a steep angle, but what could have ripped through stone in this fashion?

The grates may have been placed due to leaks created by other structures damaged by this.

Judging by the different sizes of the openings it looks like whatever caused this it was descending at the time. Broderick comments as he peers down the hold, attempting to determine how far down it goes.

Seeing you peering into the dark hole, the sorceress conjures a ball of bluish light about as bright as a torch and sends it through the grate. It illuminates a rough shaft that follows the diagnal trajectory from the upper grate, for about twelve feet, and then continues into a large open area about four yards high, briefly shining on something on the floor below in what resembles an impact crater before suddenly winking out.

Interesting, there appeared to be something shiny below. Lets lower a torch to get a better view of whatever's there.

To get a torch in you need to undo the grate.

Curious to see what Broderick is talking about Clair carefully peers through the grate and considers things

This is essentially a manhole cover with 1"holes in it. If Margeaux did not cancel het spell, it is very likely that there was a sudden drop in manna below.

The path of the holes, the no mana zone below, the shiny thing was probably star metal- meteoric iron.

Interesting, this could be a one of those stars or part of one, almost hidden here since that time. Its a pity we can't use a spell to lift it from down there. Guess we'll continue looking for a staircase that leads to that level

The shaft is fully a yard wide. While Smasher might  get caught, any one else might fit if the cover was removed.

Re: Broderick's Expedition
Broderic gives the grate a look of disappointment as he considers the situation. With an nod he motions for Margaux, Timeon, Frer Noe and Gaspard to come closer and asks if they would be prepared to venture down the opening to see what they can find. While Carrithers, Clair, Phylicity, Smasher and himself wait here for their return? If they are agreeable they set about removing the large grate to allow the quartet to descend.

Re: Broderick's Expedition
Broderick nods at their reply. We'll move on then and continue seeking a ramp or large stairwell which heads down. He states. Leading the team moves away from grates and further along the passage.

Moving further on this trajectory,  you see a set of double doors on the right hand wall, fitted with a chain similar to the one you saw before.
