How Can I Improve this Landscape Scene?

Olympus OMD 10 Mark II, Kit Lens

I have really struggled with this view and would like some pointers.  When I see this scene, I see a delapilated building on top of a huge slag heap. The building stands in Gunnerside Gill (Yorkshire Dales) an area ravaged by Lead Mining. And yet there is ugly and beauty in the scene - the course slag heap juxtaposed against the beautiful valley and stream. This is one of my favourite views in the Dales and yet I cannot do it justice.

The photo shows the builiding quite small (at least on the above picture) and yet I want to get the scale of the slag heap so the building has to be small. Yet it is a point of interest.

Knowing the background to this how would you frame this scene? How would you colourise this scene? I am open to ideas and to improving my technique.
