First impression, of course, is a lid from a 55 gal drum-- but two problems with that-- the ratio of pour hole diameter to total diameter is too big, and looking closely at the rim-- the cover seems to fit inside the rim of the outer rim, not over-lapping it like a regular barrel.

Some sort of a cover on a pipe, like a well?

Judging by the blades of grass, it's only about a foot across.

I'd try to remove the plug and then let my nose tell me whether or not to investigate further.

If it is concrete, it looks like something that's in my yard, except Starrynight's thing is round, and mine is rectangular. It is a rectangular concrete box in the ground, it is 2 feet deep, has a dirt floor and it used to have a thin concrete lid on it that could be easily lifted off. There is a faucet coming up out of the dirt at the bottom of the box for connecting a hose to and the box is big enough it will hold a 75 feet length of coiled hose. The lid had a hole in it that was big enough to pass the hose up through it. The concrete lid was brittle and worn so it was removed and replaced with a steel plate with handles for lifting and a hole in it to pass the hose up through.
