Stump Cross Caverns most likely (a Tump being a type of hill bump).

In case anyone's wondering, My Newt Chamber is a tiny 'chamber' in Shuttleworth Pot, containing the skeletons of two newts.

Here's a picture of one of them (I don't know who took it and can't remmeber how I came to have it, so can't credit it to the photographer).

So here's another clue:

Means of ascent in old castle, with donkey shielded by leaf somewhere in Easegill (6,9,7)

Deafening silence! - thought the word count would make this fairly easy...  So here's another clue: Leck Fell.

Oh; I don't know how I managed to post that; anyway, it  was an accident. I was going to say that I've cheated (or tried to cheat) by looking through my guide books, but haven't come across anything with that word count on Leck Fell.
